KNOXVILLE, TN (AP) — Knoxville police say a convicted bank robber who was wanted in the fatal shooting of a cafeteria cashier was killed in a police shootout that also injured an officer.
Police said that 54-year-old Michael Lewis Chesney was hiding under a bed in an apartment when he shot Officer Brandon Stryker on Friday night. The officer was wearing a protective vest and was treated and released from the hospital.
Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV told The Knoxville News Sentinel that other officers returned fire and killed Chesney.
Authorities say Chesney was on supervised release for a federal bank robbery conviction and was a suspect in the fatal shooting of a cashier during a robbery attempt on Thursday.
