KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A man wanted in a fatal shooting in Georgia is now accused of shooting a 2-year-old girl in Tennessee and then crashing a car into a teen while fleeing police.
News outlets report 29-year-old Victor Lynn Parson was arrested Monday. Police in DeKalb County, Georgia, say he’s accused of killing his mother’s fiance Sunday.
Arrest warrants say Parson was visiting a longtime friend in Knoxville, Tennessee, hours later when he shot the friend’s girlfriend and 2-year-old daughter. They were hospitalized. Their conditions are unclear.
Knoxville police say Parson then fled an attempted traffic stop and hit a 13-year-old boy who was riding a scooter. The boy was hospitalized with serious injuries.
Parson escaped authorities but was arrested the next morning on charges including attempted murder. He’s awaiting extradition to Georgia.
