Mobile Public Safety Director James Barber confirmed to NBC 15 News that James McAlpine, who was wanted for the violent shooting of three people at a Chevron in July, has been arrested in Dixon Mills Alabama, outside Montogomery.

The shooting happened at a Chevron at 139 S. Sage Ave. on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 around 11:30 p.m. Emanuel Devon Mcalpine, also known as “Man Man," is 21-years-old.

McAlpine allegedly shot three people in the head and only took cigarettes during the incident.

Mobile Police (MPD) were offering a $5,000 cash reward for information leading to his arrest. There's no word at this time if someone claimed that reward.

According to MPD, Mcalpine will be charged with three counts of attempt murder and robbery first degree.

Mcalpine’s previous arrest history includes domestic violence third degree and attempt to elude police. At the time of the shooting he was also out on bond for assault second degree.

Mobile Police released the following information Wednesday evening:

Emanuel Devon Mcalpine, 21, MPD’s Most Wanted, is now in Mobile Police custody after being captured today, Sept. 12, in Dixon Mills, Ala. Mcalpine was wanted for violently shooting three people during a robbery at the Chevron gas station located at 139 S. Sage Ave. on July 31 around 11:30 p.m.

Mcalpine was captured by the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit at 115 Bluebird Lane in Dixon Mills. Task Force members made entry into the residence and attempted to call out Mcalpine but to no avail.

A K-9 was then deployed and located Mcalpine in a manufactured concealed compartment within a closet. Once apprehended, he began to comply and the K-9 was disengaged.

Mcalpine sustained minor puncture wounds to his head and arms, consistent with a K-9 apprehension. The Marengo County Fire-Rescue treated him on the scene. Mcalpine will receive follow-up treatment at the hospital prior to his booking into the Mobile County Metro Jail.

Mobile Police will schedule a PERP Walk after Mcalpine is released from the hospital and detectives interview him.

Mcalpine is charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of robbery first degree.

His arrest history includes domestic violence third degree and attempt to elude police. Mcalpine was currently on bond for second-degree assault.
