KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Knoxville officers responded to calls about a shooting Saturday on Houston Street. According to the arrest report, Knoxville Police Department officers arrived at the home, they saw several holes in the front of the house.

They said a woman in the house told them the home had been shot. The officers said they were shown the bullet holes, and also found two bullet holes in the back of a vehicle parked in the home's driveway.
