Family of three charged with killing security guard over mask policy

Washington: A Family Dollar store security guard has been fatally shot in Flint, Michigan, after telling a customer her child had to wear a face mask to enter the store, prosecutors said.

An argument began when the security guard, Calvin Munerlyn, 43, told Sharmel Lashe Teague, 45, that customers needed to wear face masks, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said at a news conference. She yelled at him, spat on him and drove off, Leyton said.

About 20 minutes later, her car returned to the store and her husband and son, Larry Edward Teague, 44, and Ramonyea Travon Bishop, 23, stepped out and confronted Munerlyn, according to investigators who spoke to witnesses and reviewed surveillance video. Bishop then shot him, Leyton said.

Leyton said Munerlyn was doing his job, protecting others and enforcing a statewide executive order. In Michigan, people are required to wear face coverings in grocery stores, which can refuse service to anyone who isn’t wearing a mask.
