After hours of negotiations, it was a tragic ending to a situation at the Lowe’s store in Anniston today. According to Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham, when they arrived at the store, the employees and customers had been evacuated and moved across the street to Anniston Middle School. Police found that employee, Steven Spoon had locked himself inside an office in the back of the store.
After several hours of negotiations, while on the phone with Spoon, police heard gunshots coming from the office. They said that’s when they entered the office and found him dead. Chief Denham also said apparently, today was to be Spoon’s last day at Lowe’s because the company was parting ways with him.
