It happened on Crossings Boulevard around 7 a.m.

According to a press release, Donald King allegedly drove up and blocked in the victim’s car as 24-year-old Angel Wilkerson got out of the vehicle.

Police said King punched the 29-year-old man before shooting him twice in the legs. The gunshot victim was able to escape and call for help a short distance away. He is recovering.

After the shooting, police said King and Wilkerson got into his gray Chevrolet Malibu and drove away. The car was recovered a few hours later on Sioux Terrace in Madison.

Police were unable to find Wilkerson after the incident. Once they learned that she had not contacted her family on Thursday, a kidnapping warrant was issued for King.

Given the situation, police said they are concerned for Wilkerson’s welfare. Police said King is also reportedly the father of Wilkerson’s child.

Anyone seeing either King or Wilkerson is asked to call police at 615-862-8600.
