Three family members hold accountable for shooting a security guard who told a customer to put on a face mask
Three family members have been hold accountable in the killing of a security guard who told a customer at a Michigan Family Dollar store to wear a state-restricted face mask, officials said on Monday.
Calvin Munerlyn, 43, died at a Flint hospital after he was shot in the head Friday, said Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser.
Sharmel and Larry Teague are married, and Bishop is Sharmel’s the killer is their son, according to the prosecutor’s office.
“From all indications, Mr. Munerlyn was simply doing his job in upholding the Governor’s Executive Order related to the COVID-19 pandemic for the safety of store employees and customers,” Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said in the statement.
Footage also shows that promptly after the argument, the woman left in an SUV. But about 20 minutes later, the SUV returned.
Two men — known to be Bishop and Larry Teague — entered the store, according to the statement. One of them wailed at Munerlyn about being rude to his wife, Leyton said. The other man, later known to be Bishop, then reportedly shot the security guard, the statement said.
Police are still searching for Larry Teague and Bishop, the prosecutor’s office said.
Sharmel Teague is in detention and awaiting indictment on her charges in 67th District Court.
“In addition to the murder charge, Bishop also faces charges of felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon,” the prosecutor’s office said.
