KPD: One man arrested after vehicle struck with multiple gunshots crashes on I-275

The man was arrested after leaving Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center due to an outstanding felony warrant out of Hamilton County.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Knoxville Police said a man has been arrested after a vehicle riddled with bullets crashed on I-275 Sunday afternoon.

KPD responded to reports of a shooting around 4:10 p.m. on I-275 near Woodland Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a vehicle with multiple gunshots that had crashed in the northbound lanes of I-275.

KPD said the victim, 20-year-old Joe McCaleb, had left the scene prior to the arrival of officers and was dropped off at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center by a personal vehicle. McCaleb was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

McCaleb was arrested after his release due to an outstanding felony warrant out of Hamilton County.

KPD Violent Crimes Unit is investigating the shooting.

Editor's note: This story was updated on April 25 to reflect a correction from KPD saying that Joe McCaleb is 20 years old, not 21 years old as originally reported.
