A masked man armed with knives approached a pharmacist and demanded
narcotics, but the pharmacist dispensed lead instead. The suspect
entered Marcum's Pharmacy in Kingsport, Tenn., at 2:10 p.m. and
approached pharmacy owner Carl Marcum, demanding the narcotic drugs
OxyContin and Percocet. Marcum pulled his .38-cal. handgun and shot
the suspect, who fled out the back door and drove off in a Buick.
Police notified local hospitals to be on the lookout for a man
suffering from a gunshot wound. Two hours later the suspect, Jeffery
Jessee, was arrested at a local hospital, where he was treated and
released. Jessee was charged with aggravated robbery.
