From the Kingsport Times-News website:
BLOUNTVILLE — A pair of people wanted in Tuesday's shooting of a Bloomingdale man remained on the lam Thursday, charged not only with attempted murder, but also with kidnapping a female they allegedly used as bait in the attack.
The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office considers Jarrett Cole "Shroom" Heitmann, 24, and Makayla Danielle Stilwell, 22, armed and extremely dangerous. The victim, Dustin Bishop, 34, remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his chest. His treatment and condition have prohibited investigators from interviewing him about the incident.
The shooting occurred at about 2 a.m. at 1924 Bloomingdale Road, Lot No. 1. SCSO Capt. Joey Strickler says Heitmann and Stilwell, who are believed to be dating, arrived with another woman in tow — after abducting her from her home in Mount Carmel.
As she knows Bishop well, she was allegedly forced at gunpoint to knock on the door and lure him out of the mobile home. A police report states Bishop was then dragged into the yard by the suspects, with Heitmann shooting Bishop in the chest. Heitmann and Stilwell then fled.
The kidnapped woman sustained bruises and scrapes in the incident and gave statements to police responding to the scene. A parallel investigation into her abduction is being conducted by the Mount Carmel Police Department.
According to MCPD Detective Cody Bussell, his agency was contacted following the Bloomingdale shooting. Officers then visited the scene of the alleged kidnapping, 420 Bay St., and found several blood stains on the front door.
Once officers went inside, more spots of blood were observed throughout the home, along with a back window that was broken. When the victim was interviewed by the MCPD, she reported that she was watching TV when the window shattered. She said she ran to a bathroom to try and protect another female resident, with “Shroom” (Heitmann) then barging through the door and knocking her down.
Heitmann and Stilwell allegedly punched the victim multiple times, dragging her by her hair out of the residence. They allegedly threw her into a car and took her to Bishop's home in Bloomingdale, where Sullivan County police believe she was used to lure Bishop outside.
Investigators have suspicions about a motive for the incidents in Hawkins and Sullivan County, but have yet to concretely pinpoint it.
The SCSO reports Heitmann and Stilwell may be traveling in a mid-90s model gray or light-black Chevy S10 pickup. Strickler adds that besides handguns, Heitmann is also possibly armed with an AR-15 rifle.
Strickler says that if spotted, Heitmann and Stilwell should not be approached. He urged people to "be the best witness they can possibly be" and immediately call police.
In Sullivan County, Heitmann and Stilwell are each wanted for attempted second-degree murder, reckless endangerment, aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault and especially aggravated robbery.
Mount Carmel police have warrants for the pair on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated burglary and aggravated assault.

Thoughts? Man, Tennessee has a lot of breaking news cases lately. Heitman and Stillwell are the now the newest additions to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) Top 10 List but I put national in the thread title since it seems they are believed to be traveling across the country, possibly being spotted at a Walmart in Matamaros, Pennsylvania and are now being looked at as possible suspects in a home invasion in Bloomingburg, New York (which is upstate New York). They were last spotted in Pine Bush, which is 85 miles North of New York City. But wherever they are, if you think you know where they are, be careful, but do the right thing and call authorities.
