This week, Calvin Munerlyn, a security guard in Flint, Michigan was shot and killed after an argument with a customer who refused to wear a mask in the store. The 43-year-old guard was shot in the head on Friday at a Family Dollar. He later died in the hospital.

A Michigan woman, Sharmel Teague, 45, was officially charged with first-degree premeditated murder on Tuesday in the shooting.

Sharmel Teague, her husband, Larry Teague, 44; and her son, Ramonyea Bishop, 23, have been charged with first-degree premeditated murder charges in Friday’s killing of Calvin Munerlyn.

Sharmel Teague argued with Munerlyn after he refused to allow her daughter into the store without wearing a face mask. Footage also shows that immediately after the altercation, the woman left in an SUV. But about 20 minutes later, the SUV returned.

Two men — identified as Bishop and Larry Teague — entered the store, according to the statement. One of them yelled at Munerlyn about disrespecting his wife, Leyton said. The other man, later identified as Bishop, then allegedly shot the security guard, the statement said.

Teague was arraigned on Tuesday via video in district court, while her husband and son are believed to be on the run.

The three defendants also face gun charges. Larry Teague also is charged with violating Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order requiring all customers and employees to wear face coverings inside grocery stores.

No information has been released about the daughter, who has not been charged in the shooting.
