19-year-old accused of killing mother, stepdad and grandmother.

Sullivan County sheriff’s spokeswoman Leslie Earhart says the alleged shooter was wounded in the course of the rampage and was taken into custody a short while later in a close-by driveway.Robert Seth Denton was found a short time after the incident in the city of Bristol on Saturday, according to a statement from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office.BRISTOL, TN (WJHL) – Bond has been set at $1 million for a man accused of killing three family members and injuring a child after a shooting that happened over the weekend. Speaking before the arrest, Sheriff Wayne Anderson told NBC station WCYB on Sunday that the suspect was “apparently…a family member but I’m not sure what relationship he is.” A male victim was found with gunshot wounds and died after being airlifted to the hospital.

Leading up to the rampage, the assailant parked his vehicle nearby, walked up a steep hill and opened fire when he reached the house near Bristol, Tennessee, Anderson said Sunday. Denton’s mother, 39-year-old Toshya Millhorn, step-father 36-year-old James Millhorn and grandmother 57-year-old Lena Rose were all fatally wounded at a home located in the 600 block of Henson Road around 5:45 p.m. Denton, who lives in Bristol — which straddles the Tennessee-Virginia border, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, a count of aggravated assault and one of felony reckless endangerment. Earhart stated Sunday that a number of youngsters have been inside the house through the shootings, and one younger woman suffered nonlife threatening accidents. But a timetable obtained by WTVF-TV (http://bit.ly/1EpzpDL) shows officials planned to take the next step within days of the Aug. 21 deadline for responses to a request for information from potential vendors.

BAXTER STATE PARK, Maine (AP) — When Jackson Spencer set out to tackle the Appalachian Trail, he anticipated the solitude that only wilderness can bring — not a rolling, monthslong frat party. Shelters where he thought he could catch a good night’s sleep while listening to the sounds of nature were instead filled with trash, graffiti and people who seemed more interested in partying all night, said Spencer, who finished the entire trail last month in just 99 days. Spencer, or “Mission” as he is known to fellow thru-hikers, confronted what officials say is an ugly side effect of the increasing traffic on the Georgia-to-Maine footpath every year: More people than ever causing problems. Rose told investigators, he then grabbed a pistol, ran out the home and spotted his grandson at the end of the driveway – as he was about to leave the property.

Hundreds of miles away, misbehaving hikers contributed to a small Pennsylvania community’s recent decision to shutter the sleeping quarters it had offered for decades in the basement of its municipal building. And the numbers are only expected to climb further after “A Walk in the Woods” — a movie based on the 1998 Bill Bryson book about the Appalachian Trail— hits theaters this week. CINCINNATI (AP) — The new leader of the Frisch’s Restaurants chain wants to flex Big Boy’s brand muscle with franchise expansion, new restaurant shapes and sizes, menu and beverage additions, and doing more to court younger customers. Atlanta-based NRD Capital has taken over after shareholder approval last week of its $175 million acquisition that ended family operation of the Cincinnati-based regional business dating to a 1939 drive-thru.

He’s very conscious of the fondness for Frisch’s through generations in its home region and the attachment to its signature tartar sauce, onion rings, hot fudge sundaes and other favorites. “Our primary goal is to make sure our existing customer is totally taken care of,” he said. “So, no plan to alienate our current customer base; we want to actually make it better for them.
