At least one person has been arrested after gunfire erupted at a Tennessee gas station as authorities searched for a Kentucky fugitive on the run amid a massive manhunt.
The Tennessean reported (http://tnne.ws/1Na4HkB ) that U. S. Marshals stopped a car in rural Tennessee, believing it was connected to 62-year-old Floyd Ray Cook. Cook is a convicted felon wanted for allegedly shooting at police twice. Tennessee Highway Patrol Lt. Bill Miller says the car’s occupants fired and fled, crashing into two cars, speeding into a cornfield and running away.
Miller initially told The Associated Press that Cook was in the car. But the newspaper reported later that police are unsure whether a man inside was Cook or a man believed to be traveling with him.
Miller told the newspaper a woman was arrested shortly after the incident.
