Calvin Munerlyn, a father of nine, was gunned down after turning a customer away for trying to enter a Family Dollar in Michigan without a mask, according to authorities.
Monday, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton charged three suspects in the murder – Sharmel Teague, 45; Larry Edward Teague, 44; and Ramonyea Bishop, 23.
“Decisions like staying home when we can, wearing a mask when going to the store and staying a safe distance from those around us, these should not be political arguments,” Leyton said. “They don’t necessitate acts of defiance. and we simply cannot devolve into an us-versus-them mentality.
“We really need to make a commitment as a community … to doing the things necessary to allow us to stay healthy and turn the page on this crisis altogether. If not for ourselves, we should do this for Calvin Munerlyn, who has lost his life needlessly and senselessly.”
Officials said Sharmel Teague and her daughter went to the Family Dollar in Flint, Michigan, Friday afternoon. Security footage shows Munerlyn and Teague got into a verbal altercation after he told the woman her daughter needed a face mask to enter the store. Teague yelled and spit at Munerlyn, who asked her to leave the store and instructed a cashier not to serve her.
The security footage shows the two driving off in a red GMC Envoy.
Munerlyn, 43, was transported to Hurley Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
