Black Arrested for Double Homicide in Knoxville (At Least One White Victim)

Lamar Mallet

This doesn’t sound like a home invasion to me.

The victims probably were acquainted with this black, which was their first and biggest mistake.


Knoxville police said a man was arrested in connection to a double homicide on Tuesday.

KPD identified Lamar Mallet, 30, as a suspect in the shooting deaths of 60-year-old Randolph Ingram and 38-year-old Ashley Marie Hurt. Mallett was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the shooting death of Ingram.

Mallet was booked into the Knox County Detention Center and is being held on a $500,000 bond. Officials said additional charges are pending.

Police were called to a shooting in the 2800 block of E. 5th Ave just after midnight on Tuesday. At the scene they found Ingram lying in the street.

KPD said Hurt was found inside a home on 5th Ave.

According to police reports, Mallett entered Ingram’s home just after midnight. While in the house, police said Mallett shot Ingram several times with a handgun. As Ingram ran from his home, Mallett reportedly chased him onto 5th Ave. and shot Ingram in the back.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
