A security guard at a store in Flint, Michigan, was shot dead after asking a customer to wear a mask, which is mandatory in the territory to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Calvin Munerlyn, 43, died in a local hospital after being shot in the head on Friday, said Michigan State Police Lieutenant David Kaiser, who told CNN that the shooter and a second suspect remain at large.
Several people in the store told police that Munerlyn got into a verbal altercation with a woman because she was not wearing a mask, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said. A security camera video confirms the incident, he said.
The footage shows that after the dispute, the woman leaves in a car but 20 minutes later the car returns. Two men enter the store and one of them begins to blame Munerlyn for not “respecting” his wife, Leyton said. Then the second man shoots him.
