Man Charged in Hampton McDonald’s Shooting Commits Suicide

The man charged in the shooting death of another man in the Hampton McDonald’s parking lot has committed suicide, according to the Carter County Sheriff’s Office.

A shooting call was reported on Mountain View Circle. When police responded to the scene they found 64-year-old Steve Mack Miller severely wounded inside the house. Miller was taken to the Johnson City Medical Center where he later died.

Miller was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Alan Lyle Jansma last month. He was out on bond at the time of his suicide.
