Security guard who asked shopper to wear a mask is shot and killed

A security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigan, was shot and killed after telling a customer that a mask must be worn inside the store.

“Calvin Munerlyn, 43, died at a local hospital after he was shot in the head Friday, said Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser,” CNN reports. “The shooter and a second suspect remain at large, Kaiser told CNN on Monday. Witnesses at the store told police that Munerlyn got into a verbal altercation with a woman because she was not wearing a mask, said Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton. Surveillance video confirms the incident, Leyton said.”

According to surveillance footage, the woman left in an SUV, but about 20 minutes later the SUV returned and two men got out and entered to store and confronted Munerlyn, with one of them yelling at him for disrespecting his wife. The other man then shot him.

The two suspects are still at large.

Update: NBC News is reporting that three suspects have been charged in the murder of Munerlyn. Two of the suspects, Ramonyea Bishop, 23, and Larry Teague, 44, were still being sought, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said. The third suspect, Sharmel Teague, 45, has been arrested, Leyton said.
