A sunny, late winter afternoon in Western Geneva County...
Became the scene of the worst mass murder incident ever to occur in Alabama.

He then drove to Samson where he shot complete strangers on the street and outside homes.
McClendon took ten lives before turning the gun on himself.
Geneva County Deputy Josh Myers lost his wife and young daughter in the shooting rampage.
