Sheriff's Office investigating shooting

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed last night in a shooting incident.

Skyler Daniel Boring, 17, Silverbell Drive, Maryville, was pronounced dead at University of Tennessee Medical Center last night.

Shortly after 10 p.m., the Sheriff's Office responded to a residence on East Lamar Alexander Parkway to the call of a shooting. Boring was already being transported to BMH by personal vehicle, but they were met by Rural/Metro Ambulance Service at a business on East Lamar Alexander Parkway and Boring was taken to BMH, then flown by Life Star to U.T. Medical Center where he was pronounced dead a short time later. The details of the incident are still under investigation.

The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the incident.
