White nationalist on the run after shooting Tennessee cop

Authorities say Ronnie Lucas Wilson shot officer Jay Williams in front of a Target store around 8:30 p.m.as the policeman attempted to stop Wilson for speeding.

A confirmed member of the Aryan Nations white supremacist gang was put on Tennessee's Top 10 Most Wanted list on Friday after authorities identified him as the suspect who opened fire and wounded a veteran Knoxville police officer during a traffic stop Thursday evening. Ronnie Wilson said he has not been in touch with Lucas Wilson since the shooting.

Police Officer Jay William was shot during a traffic stop, January 11, 2018.

The Knoxville Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirm Wilson 31 is charged with attempted first-degree murder of a policer officer.

Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch told the news station that Wilson is expected to be armed, possibly with two weapons.

URGENT: White supremacist who shot police officer on the run, added to Most Wanted list

Deputies and officers from Knoxville and Knox County were in full force Friday afternoon after an officer-involved shooting sent one officer to the hospital Thursday night. He was given a three-year prison sentence after he was convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011.

"If you see this vehicle, if you know this individual, do not try to intervene", Rausch said. "If he took a shot at an officer, he wouldn't hesitate to take a shot at anyone else".

According to the Anti-Defamation League's website, that Celtic cross image is the main symbol for the Aryan Nations, described as "the largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee".

Investigators recovered the suspect's auto early Friday.

"It borrows its name from the older neo-Nazi group of the same name but is a completely separate group", according to the ADL.
