Deputy recovering after being hit by stolen truck”

It happened around 9 p.m.at Carol's grocery on West Andrew Johnson Highway.

According to Hamblen County Sherrif Esco Jarnagin, a deputy stopped a stolen truck. Authorities say that's when deputies opened fire, hitting the truck and possibly the driver.

That is when the suspect, Anthony Duane Sizemore, accelerated the vehicle and struck on the officers.

Law enforcement arrived on scene and approached the driver of the vehicle. That truck was reported stolen and deputy Wolfe was talking with one of the suspects, who stepped out of the vehicle.

The truck was later found abandoned in Newport and the two suspects, including Sizemore, are now in custody.

TBI says he is charged with Attempted First Degree Murder.

He was taken to a hospital for his injuries and released into the Hamblen County Jail. Sizemore did receive medical attention for a gunshot wound to the leg.

At the request of 3rd District Attorney General Dan Armstrong, TBI Special Agents began investigating an officer-involved shooting incident that occurred Saturday evening in Morristown.
