BEAN STATION, TN (WJHL) -

An East Tennessee pharmacy owner and a customer have been killed during a robbery that left a pharmacy tech and another employee wounded.

District Attorney Jimmy Dunn said a former police officer in Bean Station was taken into custody shortly after the shooting and robbery Thursday at the Down Home Pharmacy.

Dunn said the former officer, 37-year-old Jason B. Holt, took "a large quantity of pills" during the late-morning robbery.

An arrest report obtained by News Channel 11 from the Bean Station Police Department says that the pharmacy owner and the customer died at the scene, while Holt left with prescription narcotics.

Dunn said the two employees were flown by helicopter to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where they were in stable condition.

Holt was apprehended by local police and sheriff's officers. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents were summoned to the scene to assist.

The town's population is less than 3,000.
