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."

A routine shoplifting trip to a Family Dollar store ended with the termination of one of the Phoenix officers who responded to the scene.

Iesha Harper, 24, and Dravon Ames, 22, took their daughters - ages 1 and 4 - to the Family Dollar on May 27.

After leaving the store with items they didn't pay for, the couple complained that the police pulled their car over and pointed guns in their faces.

The store employees had called the cops, saying they believed the family stole items from the store. A worker had observed the 4-year-old girl leaving the store with a doll.

Cell phone video shows the cops pointing guns at the family and ordering them out of their car. The video quickly went viral, and social media activists went nuts. The drama escalated because the family was Black and the cops were Caucasian.

On Tuesday, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said one of the cops, Officer Christopher Meyer, was notified of his termination.

A disciplinary review board had recommended he receive a 6-week suspension, but Williams, who is Black, said the punishment was "not sufficient to reverse the adverse effects on our department and our community."

"I expect more. You deserve more," she said, according to the NY Daily News. "Unlike other professions, we don't have a luxury of a do-over."

Harper, who was five months pregnant at the time of the incident, approved of Meyer's firing - although she said she had hoped both officers would lose their jobs.

"I think I might be able to get a good night's rest for once knowing that he's fired, and it won't happen to no one else," she said. "I think it's a step in the right direction."

The second officer seen in the video received a reprimand for using foul language.

The family filed a $10 million lawsuit against the city.
