Violence on Super Bowl Sunday was not restricted to the football field, as one man was taken into custody after Blount County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Alcoa police officers responded to a shooting in an apparent domestic dispute Sunday afternoon at 814 Marcaro Lane in Maryville.
A few hours later, Alcoa police were investigating a possible homicide where three bodies were reportedly found in a home at 813 Maple Street in Alcoa, according to dispatchers.
Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Marcaro Lane home at approximately 4:45 p.m., and the unidentified victim, 36, was taken to the hospital after suffering gunshot wounds to the head and an arm.
He was transported via LifeStar to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he was reported to be in critical condition.
The unidentified suspect, 37, has not yet been charged. Alcoa Police Department and Rural Metro Ambulance Service also responded to the scene. The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the shooting.
Meanwhile, Alcoa police were dispatched to the Maple Street at close to 9 p.m. Investigators searched the front yard and questioned many neighbors concerning what could have happened.
Police took one man in for questioning. It was not certain whether he discovered the bodies or had any involvement.
These incidents will both be updated in Tuesday’s print edition of The Daily Times.
