A Holly Springs, Miss. man was killed on Tuesday night just inside Graceland Too, a home turned into a shrine to Elvis Presley in Mississippi, The Daily Journal reported.

Dwight David Taylor Jr. died from a single gunshot wound to the chest, Marshall County Coroner Richard Anderson told the Daily Journal.

Anderson confirmed that the shooter was the museum’s owner, Paul McLeod (pictured, on the left in his museum), but police have not filed charges against him. He was released from police custody after questioning.

Taylor knocked on the museum’s door to ask for money, according to the police. McLeod refused to give him money and tried to close the door. Taylor then allegedly forced the door open with his foot, and McLeod shot him. Police found Taylor dead just inside the front door of the museum.

McLeod displays his collection of Elvis memorabilia in his home-turned-museum, which is very popular with local college students, according to The Daily Journal.
