Cocke County Deputy Logan Starritt said Thomas Andy Campbell, 62, Green Forest Road, yelled at his wife Shirley Campbell, fired a .44 handgun into the air and told his wife "she was next".

Campbell was restrained and jailed on charges of two counts each aggravated domestic assault and domestic assault.
