The SunHerald reports:
PEARL RIVER COUNTY — Authorities have released the names of all four people involved in a shooting at a Pearl River County gun store that left two dead and two injured.
Jason A. McLemore, 44, the owner of McLemore Gun Shop, and his son, Jacob Edward McLemore, 17, were killed in the shooting, said Pearl River County Deputy Coroner Albert H. Lee. Both died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Audy McCool, 52, and his son Michael McCool, 29, both sustained life-threatening injuries. As of Sunday morning, Michael McCool was stable in the intensive care unit. There was no update on Audy McCool’s condition, said Pearl River County Chief Deputy Shane Tucker.
The shooting occurred around 3 p.m. at the gun store on Mississippi 43, Tucker said.
Jason McLemore’s wife was working at the shop when the McCools entered to pick up a firearm that had been repaired. There was some sort of argument about a $25 fee, Tucker said.
The woman called her husband, who arrived with their son, Tucker said. An argument ensued and the shooting began.
