A domestic dispute led to two arrests in the March 27 burglary of Bucksnort Grocery.
According to the Tipton County Sheriff's Office, early that morning, deputies responded to an alarm call at the Highway 59 West business to find it'd been burglarized.
Surveillance video showed the suspect was armed with a shotgun and fled the scene in a silver four-door sedan.
An hour later, Covington police responded to the Broadmeadow apartment complex after shots were reportedly fired during an argument.
The suspect – Jeremy Kilpatrick – left the apartment in a vehicle matching the description of the one involved in the Bucksnort Grocery burglary.
Nearly 10 hours later, detectives found the 22-year-old Mason man on foot at the apartment complex. After a foot pursuit, Kilpatrick and a 16-year-old were arrested.
They were found to be in possession of the shotgun believed to be used in both crimes. The gun was stolen from a Madison County home.
"I commend the deputies and detectives on the great police work and quick arrest of these suspects," said sheriff Pancho Chumley.
Kilpatrick has been charged with burglary, theft of property, vandalism and felon in possession of a firearm.  
Covington Police Department has filed charges on Kilpatrick related to the domestic incident. He remains in custody awaiting his Tipton County General Sessions Court arraignment.  
The juvenile has been petitioned on charges of burglary, vandalism and theft of property.  The juvenile was released to his parent awaiting his appearance in Tipton County Juvenile Court.  
Kilpatrick and the juvenile both face multiple charges in Madison County.
