That Knoxville article just contains a link to the original article here:


The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reports Trevor Lee Burton, 44, was apprehended after a lengthy standoff with police. A statement from the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office says they've charged Burton with three counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Neighbors of Burton called police to Campbell Drive on Thursday evening. Helm says they complained about Burton visiting their home while drinking and armed with a pistol.

When Burton began shooting at people on a hay ride, according to the witnesses' statements to police, they called 911.

HCSO Chief Deputy Tony Allen says that when police responded, Burton was spotted along a tree line. A Sheriff's Office press release says Burton shot towards three officers, with one officer returning fire. Burton then ran into the woods.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm says the TBI has yet to verify the claim that Burton shot toward a hay ride, or if those alleged victims may have been affiliated with any church or organization.
