Shawn Paul Melonakos, 29, is accused of attempting to leave The Door of Hope Thrift Store with merchandise for which he did not pay. When a nearby man pointed out that Melonakas was trying to steal from the store, the suspect reportedly threatened his accuser with “a large rock.”

The accuser, in turn, told police he feared for his life and therefore whipped out a firearm and fired off a shot. He and another man then reportedly chased Melonakas down the street and held him until officers arrived.
