Late last week, Charles McMillon Jr. was at a U-Haul dropping off a rented van with his son and childhood friend Kendrick Clemons. They had just left the van at a U-Haul drop-off location at Fountain Plaza on Apalachee Parkway and as they were sitting in a truck where McMillon was preparing to leave and typing in the mileage on a phone app, there was a gunshot. As the men looked back, they noticed an older white couple coming in their direction with guns pointing at them. The couple then yelled “Don’t move!” and demanded that the men surrender. But McMillon placed his GMC truck in reverse, drove around the rented van, and took off in fear as they heard more gunfire as they fled.

The white couple, Wallace Fountain, 77, and his wife, Beverly Fountain, 72, own the strip mall and claimed that they were having problems with people stealing gas and wanted to scare off any culprits.
