DALLAS COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

New details are emerging in the investigation into a shooting at a Dallas County dollar store that ended with a gunman dead at the hands of a customer who decided to take action.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson has identified the gunman as Kevin McLaughlin from Orrville and the customer as Marlo Ellis, 37, also from Orrville.


The fatal shooting happened around 12:45 p.m. Thursday at the Dollar General on Highway 22 in Orrville.
Officials say McLaughlin walked into the store waving a gun in the air and forced a cashier and Ellis at gunpoint towards a break room. At that point, Ellis pulled out a concealed weapon and shot McLaughlin once in the chest.
"He escorted a customer who was trying to leave the store and a cashier toward a break room. The cashier went in first and the customer went in behind her, and the individual had the gun on the customer and the customer had a pistol concealed in a holster," Dallas County Sheriff Harris Huffman said. "And when the customer got to the door, he turned around and shot the individual."


McLaughlin was pronounced dead at the scene. The tense ordeal played out in less than five minutes, police said.
Other customers and delivery men were inside the store at the time of the incident. Several customers making their way into the store saw McLaughlin waving a gun and ran away.
The Dollar General store was closed Thursday afternoon following the shooting. A sign on the front door indicated it would reopen Friday.


There was another sign on the doors of the business stating that open carry of a weapon was not allowed inside the store. According to the sheriff, the Ellis' gun was concealed and inside a holster. His investigators are confirming whether Ellis has a valid concealed carry permit.

From what I was reading in the comments the guy is accused of statutory rape with a 15 or 16 yr old, not excusable by any means but nowhere near as bad as kidnapping and forcing himself on a girl. Some teenage girls are loons. My best friends growing up had a sister who, at 16, willingly had sex with a 60 yr old coach from her school. 15 is legal in many states in this country unfortunately, just not all. And let's say you're in one of these states that has a higher age limit, and a 16 yr old gets a fake i.d. and is drinking in a bar, you go home with her, her daddy finds out and doesn't like it, you're now a convicted "rapist."
