October 1, 2018

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee sheriff says authorities believe a man wanted in a deadly attack last month has fatally shot a man and stolen his truck.

Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson said during a press conference Monday that several law enforcement agencies have an area near the Stewart County line locked down in an effort to find 53-year-old Kirby Gene Wallace, who is accused of attacking a couple Sept. 23, setting fire to their home, killing the wife and seriously injuring the husband.

Fuson said Wallace is also suspected of fatally shooting a man Monday morning and stealing his truck. He said police later found the vehicle crashed and think Wallace is on foot.

He said officers are searching rugged terrain with the aid of dogs and helicopters. He urged residents in the area to stay in their homes and to call 911 if they see anything suspicious.
