Wilson has been accused of firing a shotgun multiple times at KPD officer Jay Williams Thursday night during a traffic stop on Washington Pike.
Wilson, 31, was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's top 10 most wanted fugitives list early Friday, and a $2,500 reward is being offered for his arrest.
Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch told the news station that Wilson is expected to be armed, possibly with two weapons.

The league also kicked Foster out of the combine due to an argument with a student hospital aide while undergoing a medical exam. His 90.7 overall Pro Football Focus grade ranked fourth among all NFL linebackers a year ago .
Investigators recovered the suspect's auto early Friday. Wilson allegedly fired at Officer Williams from his black mid 70s model Chevrolet Nova while it was still in motion then fired several more shots after the vehicle came to a stop. He is being sought on a attempted murder warrant.
Law enforcement agencies across the state are "very familiar" with Wilson, Rausch said. "So when they go out into the exercise yard, they take off their shirt, then it's readily apparent who they belong to, what their rank is in the gang, and then that status that they're looking for". He has a history of violence and considered risky.
KPD said if Wilson isn't apprehended by Friday morning, they're considering putting out what is known as a Blue Alert.
