    At least nine people are dead from gunshot wounds in Geneva County. Some of the dead are in Samson, the others near or in Geneva. The shooter was then shot himself to death at Reliable Products in Geneva. A source tells WDHN the shooter is Steven McLendon but that could not immediately be confirmed. (more at link)

    The shooting spree began in Samson and included at least one victim at a gas station.

    Geneva County Coroner Max Motley said he was called to the Big Little Store on West Main Street in Samson, where he found the body of a woman between the gas pump and the front door. She was found face up with at least one fatal gunshot wound. Other victims are at a home off of Highway 52.

    Dothaneagle.com will be continuously updated with information on this breaking story as it becomes available.

    Friends and neighbors living on Wise Street in Samson say they won’t sleep tonight after witnessing a shooting spree by a man who one person said was a “cool guy.”
    Alina Knowles, who was moving into a house with her husband close to where seven people were gunned down, described the bloody scene. (more at link)

    There is more shooting locations being investigated. Sounds like the number might go up. Also a mention of arson that could be related. I'm going to go back and look, but I remember seeing an article earlier about two people found dead in burned house. BRB.

    This is the article I saw. It may or may not be related:

    ETA: probably not related as this was in a different county than the related arson was.

    It just keeps getting worse:

    (snip)
    State fire marshals are investigating the scene of a burned house in Coffee County where one body was found. The scene is believed to be involved in this series of incidents. There are believed to be additional victims shot and wounded during these episodes.
    This is a very complicated investigation that is unfolding, with multiple crime scenes and a number of agencies working together.
    As the investigation continues, additional information will be made available.

    I haven't seen a name reported yet, but I have seen that he apparently worked at Reliable Metal, which is in Geneva. They make metal products for heating and AC systems.

    ....why? This is so sad, I just have to wonder why, not that there is a valid excuse-but I want to hear the b.s. that "set him off" so i can be mad at him instead of just sad.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?
