Fugitive Shot & Killed In Catoosa County

A fugitive from Texas was shot and killed by officers in Catoosa County, after the suspect shot and wounded a police officer in neighboring East Ridge Tennessee, Sunday.
The man, identified as John Kitts, was hiding in woods near Lake Winnepesauka when he fired on officers… and was killed in the return-fire.  He was located by a K-9 after an hours-long manhunt.  Kitts was wanted in Texas on charges.
East Ridge officer Terry Prescott is recovering from wounds he received, after pulling Kitts over in a routine traffic stop.
