Police investigate West Knoxville apartment shooting

Police responded to a shooting call at the Grove Apartments in West Knoxville Sunday morning.

When KPD officers arrived, they found a man, 28-year-old Andrew Fox,  suffering from a serious gunshot wound.

According to the preliminary investigation, the owner of the apartment, 28-year-old David Weaver, woke up to loud banging at his front door. Weaver said he was being threatened by an unknown person, who later turned out to be Fox.

Weaver grabbed his shotgun and watched as Fox entered his apartment through the sliding glass door. Weaver then shot Fox once in the abdomen.

Investigators found that Fox lived in the same apartment complex. Fox was taken to UT Medical Center where he is being treated for a potentially life-threatening injury.
