Aryan Nations member at large after shooting cop with shotgun

Wilson is being sought on an attempted murder warrant. He is a confirmed member of the Aryan Nations and has a history of violence.

Officer David Williams is out of the hospital after being shot.


"If he is going to take a shot at an officer, he won't hesitate to shoot at anyone else", Rausch cautioned.

Ronnie Lucas Wilson has made the "Top 10 Most Wanted" list, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities recovered what is believed to be Wilson's vehicle early Friday.

Ronnie Lucas Wilson, 31, is believed to be the motorist who jumped out of his auto and without warning opened fire multiple times on Officer Jay Williams, who had pulled him over on Washington Pike in Knoxville about 8:30 p.m.

Knoxville police said Lucas used a shot gun and fired multiple times. So we ask that folks if you see the vehicle, if you know this individual, then do not intervene.

The father of the man on the run Friday after being accused of shooting a Knoxville police officer is asking him to turn himself in. "Call law enforcement and let us know where he is". His Facebook pictures show he has a tattoo of a swastika and another which bears the words "White Pride Worldwide".

Law enforcement agencies across the state are "very familiar" with Wilson, Rausch said.

In Knox County, Wilson was convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011 and was sentenced to serve three years in a state prison, according to court records.

The Aryan Nations is the largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee, according to the Anti-Defamation League. Officer Williams was hit in the shoulder, and is expected to survive what authorities have classified as an attempted murder.
