KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A routine burglar alarm call Tuesday ended with a veteran Knoxville police officer being shot for the second time in his career, eight black men being taken into custody and a community being sent into lockdown.

Authorities said the search continued late Tuesday night for the "two or three" men who shot Knoxville Police Department Offi cer Norman Rickman, a 19-year veteran, as he responded to the alarm call in Northwest Knoxville near the city limits.
