Johnson City police, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers were at McKinley Mobile Home Park in a showdown with 30-year-old Cory M. Cox. Officers arrived shortly after 1:15 p.m. after receiving an anonymous tip he was there.
Johnson City Police Maj. Debbie Botelho confirmed that Cox was inside the trailer, as three other people left the residence saying Cox was inside. The JCPD’s hostage negotiator talked to Cox in hopes of getting him to come out of the trailer, but he never responded to her.
