KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Knoxville Police Department officers responded to a shooting in the 1700 block of Hazen street just after 6 p.m. Monday, according to officials.

A 19-year-old, identified as Cholly Harris, was shot at least one time, according to KPD officials. According to a preliminary investigation, Harris and a male suspect got into an argument that escalated and ended in gunfire.

Officers and KFD personnel gave the man “extensive medical attention,” but he was later pronounced dead at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.

Several witnesses were detained for questioning, officials said. The incident is still under investigation, now by the Knox County District Attorney’s Office.
