Camdenton Police have now named the man who shot himself, one day after allegedly stealing prescription pills at gunpoint from a local pharmacy.
Clayton Phillips, 28, of Macks Creek, is currently at a Columbia hospital, with critical injuries.
Police say it was Sunday when Phillips jumped the counter of a Camdenton grocery-store pharmacy, stealing hundreds of pills. Tips lead them to Phillips’ house, Monday night. When they attempted to serve a search warrant, they heard a gunshot, then later found Phillips inside with a singl- gunshot wound to the head.
