A liquor store employee in Arkansas was fatally gunned down while working the drive-through.
On the afternoon of July 17, Patrick Brown, 24, allegedly shot Daniel Dunnahoo, 60, at Westside Wine & Spirits in Little Rock.
Officers responding to the scene around 5 p.m. discovered Dunnahoo on the store’s floor with blood covering his face. He was rushed to CHI St. Vincent but did not survive the attack.
The suspect fled the scene and barricaded himself in an apartment before surrendering to a SWAT team, KATV reported.
“I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh in daylight? What is going on?'” nearby resident Debbie Schneider told KLRT-TV of the incident. “I just think it’s a shame because they’re so many good people here.”
A man who worked at a Papa Murphy’s pizzeria next to the crime scene said he saw detectives putting up police tape. “That’s when I realized something real bad must have happened,” he noted.
“I would go see him like every other day,” the employee said of the shooting victim. “He would ask me all the time, you coming to get your regular. He was always a nice guy.”
Brown was booked into the Pulaski County Jail on a capital murder charge. He is being held without bond, online records show.
