NEWPORT-One person is dead and another injured after
three men, allegedly seeking drugs and money, broke into a trailer on Leaf Way
just before 3 a.m. Friday in the Carson Springs area.
According to Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes, the
three men planned to rob two men inside the residence when shots were fired and
William Andrew Mortimer, 27, was killed.
The resident of the trailer, Josh Baker, was also
allegedly shot, suffering a head wound, but "is doing fine," Sheriff
Armando Fontes said later on Friday.
The shooting occurred at 332 Leaf Way, at a trailer in a
trailer park located off Clevenger Cut-off. Mortimer, who lived two trailers down, was visiting Baker.

to the sheriff.
James ("Bo") Michael Brewer, 25, of 116
