Ronnie Wilson is wanted for allegedly shooting a police officer

An alleged white supremacist shot a police officer who tried to pull him over for speeding and is now at large, "armed and unsafe", authorities said.

Police recovered Wilson's vehicle and are now searching for Wilson himself, whom they describe as "armed and extremely unsafe".

The father of the man on the run Friday after being accused of shooting a Knoxville police officer is asking him to turn himself in. He is a confirmed member of the Aryan Nations and has a history of violence.

It's unclear if he was the only person in the vehicle during the attempted traffic stop. Wilson is wanted by the Knoxville Police and the TBI to face a charge of attempted first degree murder of a police officer.

'Do not attempt to intervene. "Call law enforcement and let us know where he is".

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.
