LC Man Shot In Face

Details are still sketchy, but apparently a Lenoir City man was shot in the face early Sunday morning during what is being called an attempted break in to a home in Loudon.

Allegedly, the man was attempting to break in to the home on Steekee Road around 3:00 am Sunday morning when he was confronted by the home owner. The home owner was armed with a 22 rifle and at some point fired at the perpetrator striking him in the face.

Loudon County sheriff's deputies quickly arrived on the scene and were able to track the wounded man down where he was taken into custody.

More details when they become available.
