Original story:

A shooting was reported Wednesday in the Gray community of Knox County.

A call to Knox County 911 complaining of the shooting led Knox County Sheriff’s deputies Lt. Sam Mullins, Sgt. Bobby Jones, Deputies Jeremiah Williamson and Mike Taylor to respond.

Once on the scene, deputies ascertained that the alleged shots being fired was the result of a verbal argument between two men. Deputies say one of the men was possibly struck, but both men fled the scene before deputies arrived.
