They are withholding the identification pending notification of next of kin, Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said.

The young man was fatally shot and a second suspect may have been wounded in the gunfire at 814 Carls Lane off Cherokee Trail.

The incident began when the homeowner said he heard someone knocking on his door about 5:25 a.m., according toDeBusk.

The homeowner said he put a handgun in his pocket as he went to the door.

When he was opening the door, two men attempted to push their way in and he pulled the gun from his pocket and fired twice at them, DeBusk said he told officers.

One of the suspects fired once at the homeowner, the man said.

Both suspects fled in a vehicle, the man told police.

As officers were investigating, E-911 got a call that a shooting victim was expected at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Officers were dispatched to the hospital, but a victim never arrived.
