Elvis tourist attraction is site of a deadly shooting

A 28-year-old man was shot and killed Tuesday night at Graceland Too, the popular Elvis Presley tourist attraction in Holly Springs, Miss.

The shooting occurred about 10:40 p.m. at the shrine to Presley, Holly Springs police said. The home-turned-Elvis-Presley-museum is owned by Paul MacLeod, who allegedly shot Dwight David Taylor, a coroner told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.

MacLeod told police that Taylor came to the home late at night asking for money, and when MacLeod declined, Taylor stopped the door from being shut, the Journal reported.

When reached by the Los Angeles Times, police said no charges have been filed yet, but the investigation is ongoing.

Graceland Too is a two-story home, filled wall-to-wall with Presley memorabilia. It is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
