Police said two armed men claiming to be police officers forced their way through the front door of Mills' home. Mills struggled with one of them, who shot him, police said.
Mills's wife reportedly took him to Knox County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said on the day of the shooting that they didn't think Mills' home was targeted randomly. They said the intruders searched the house before leaving.
