Kingsport man charged with attempted murder following shooting in apartment

KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man has been arrested after allegedly shooting a visitor to his apartment in the leg early Tuesday morning, then stealing a fryer from a woman who accompanied the victim.

The incident occurred at 602 Watauga Street, unit 5. The resident, Jamie D. Maynard, 37, was arrested following a brief struggle with police inside the apartment.

A Kingsport police arrest report says officers responded to a call of shots fired at approximately 1:30 a.m. On the ground in front of the residence officers found the victim, a 21-year-old male, screaming that he'd been shot. He told police the shooter was still inside the residence, with officers then pulling him to safety and securing the building.
