Police in Tennessee are looking for a member of the white supremacist gang Aryan Nations who allegedly opened fire on a Knoxville police officer Thursday Night, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

Officer Jay Williams was in the middle of a traffic stop when police say Wilson fired his weapon from inside his auto.

He was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's top 10 most wanted fugitives list shortly before 10am.

"The officer, as far as I'm aware, did not fire his weapon", Rausch said.

Police recovered Wilson's vehicle and are now searching for Wilson himself, whom they describe as "armed and extremely unsafe". Officer Williams was hit while conducting a traffic stop for a speeding violation.

At the time he was pulled over, Wilson was driving a black 1970s model Chevrolet Nova with a red stripe on its hood, Rausch said.

"Thank God that the officer that was shot is doing okay, thank God for that and his family". He is being sought on a attempted murder warrant.

KPD said if Wilson isn't apprehended by Friday morning, they're considering putting out what is known as a Blue Alert.

The Knoxville Police Department says the officer has been taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police said Ronnie Lucas Wilson is armed and risky. He was sentenced to three years in state prison after being convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011, the outlet said. So we ask that folks if you see the vehicle, if you know this individual, then do not intervene.

Aryan Nations is the largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee with over 700 members, according to the Anti-Defamation League. His Facebook pictures show he has a tattoo of a swastika and another which bears the words "White Pride Worldwide".
