HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - A 28-year-old man was shot and killed just inside the door of Graceland Too, a 24-hour Elvis Presley tourist attraction in the northern Mississippi town of Holly Springs.

Marshall County Coroner Richard Anderson says 28-year-old Dwight David Taylor Jr. was pronounced dead shortly after police responded to a 911 call at 10:41 p.m. Tuesday.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/1mVKph1 ) reports Anderson said Taylor died from a single, .45-caliber gunshot to the chest.

Anderson also confirmed the shooter was Paul MacLeod, owner and operator of the home-based attraction. No charges were filed.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/1qIhRHt ) MacLeod's attorney, Phillip Knecht, said in a news release, that a man forced his way inside MacLeod's home, demanding money. Knecht says the two got into a fight when the intruder refused to leave.
