KINGSPORT — A 36-year-old Rogersville man was shot multiple times on Tuesday evening in the Highland neighborhood following an argument with another person, the Kingsport Police Department reports.

As a result, 23-year-old Tyjuan M. Marsh of Atlanta, Georgia, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

According to a press release, Kingsport officers responded to the 1600 block of G Street shortly after 9 p.m. on Tuesday in reference to a shooting incident. Upon arrival, officers found Jeremy L. Smallwood of Rogersville, lying in the roadway with multiple gunshot wounds.

Sullivan County E.M.S. transported Smallwood to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment.

According to the release, officers detained Marsh at the scene and identified him as the individual who shot Smallwood.
