Knoxville Police tweeted shortly before 8 a.m. Friday that Williams has been released from the hospital.
The Aryan Nations is the largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee, according to the Anti-Defamation League. During his time as a KPD officer, Williams has been noted for his compassion and service as a community hero.
Authorities were searching for 31-year-old Ronnie Lucas Wilson, who has an unrelated, outstanding warrant for violation of probation for aggravated assault and who should be considered armed and risky, Rausch said.
Williams was shot once in the shoulder, and is being treated at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid: Liverpool star speaks out on transfer rumours
Liverpool ace Salah has 20 goals in all competitions and is now one of the hottest properties in European football at present. He has scored 22 goals, 17 goals in the Premier League and five goals in the UEFA Champions League .
Wilson fired at the officer while in his vehicle, and then got out and continued firing, Rausch said. Rausch said the officer did not fire his weapon.
A Tennessee police officer was shot on Thursday night and the suspect wanted for his attempted murder is on the run. When you go to work in the morning, remember that "just another day at the office" for those in blue means putting their lives at risk for us. So we ask that folks if you see the vehicle, if you know this individual, then do not intervene. "If he is going to take a shot at an officer, he won't hesitate to shoot at someone else".
Law enforcement agencies across the state are "very familiar" with Wilson, Rausch said. "Let law enforcement handle this".
KPD confirmed earlier Friday morning the auto belonging to Wilson had been located in Corryton in a wooded area of a rural area at the intersection of Emory Road and Jim Wolfe Road. Please keep our @Knoxville_PD officers in your thoughts and prayers.
