Three family members have been charged in the shooting death of a Family Dollar security guard (right) who told a woman to wear a face mask while in the store.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton announced the arrests of Sharmel Lashe Teague, 45, her husband Larry Edward Teague, 44, and Sharmel's son Ramonyea Travon Bishop, 23.
All three are charged with the death of Calvin James Munerlyn, 43, who was employed at a Family Dollar store just north of downtown Flint, Michigan.
According to a news release, Sharmel entered the store around 1:40 p.m. on May 1 without a face mask on and Munerlyn told her she had to wear a mask while in the store.
She began yelling and spitting at Munerlyn who ordered her to leave the store and instructed a cashier not to serve her.
She left the store and returned a short time later with her husband and son, later identified as Larry Teague (right) and Ramonyea Bishop.
Police say it was Bishop who confronted Munerlyn, and then pulled a gun and shot the security guard in the back of the head.
Munerlyn was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A candlelight vigil for Munerlyn was attended by about 150 mourners on Sunday. The mourners included his mother, Bernadett Munerlyn, and his son Maalik Mitchell (pictured below).
"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," Leyton wrote in a post on Facebook. "It is important that the Governor's order be respected and adhered to and for someone to lose their life over it is beyond comprehension."
.@realDonaldTrump, remember your crazy tweet to liberate Michigan? You and your incitement of your unstable base are responsible for this murder.
