Carolina Serial Killer Captured in West Texas

A man sought in a bloody shooting rampage across the Carolinas was arrested Wednesday morning in West Texas.

Twenty-two year-old Quincy Allen was found at an I-20 rest stop, just west of Colorado City. Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Tombs found Allen asleep in a stolen Ford Explorer. Officers were in the process of surrounding the vehicle with spike strips, when Allen woke up and drove off. Officers fired several shots. Allen was not hurt by the gunfire, however, he crashed a few miles later after his tires gave out and hit another vehicle.

Allen allegedly shot a clerk and a customer to death at this North Carolina convenience store on Sunday. He is also charged with two deaths in Columbia, South Carolina.
