    I’m so happy that he is in jail. Maybe they will keep him in there and he will think about what he has done and the life’s he has traumatized. That night really scared me since I was in the parking lot, I was not able to sleep well at night. The whole thing would keep replaying in my head. To think I had my 11 month old son in the truck with me and he could of shot and robbed us before he went in that store was terrifying.

    WOW, cannot get over how ‘remorseful’ this guy looks.
    Glad he’s in custody hope the LEO got his gun also.
    Our world is getting more and more something where we need to be constantly on watch.

    I’m sooooo glad this guy is finally behind bars. I wasn’t able to sleep at night knowing he was out on the streets. Hopefully the judge put him away for LIFE this time. Now I can sleep in peace tonight knowing he’s been captured. Good jobs Conecuh County Police.
