Family Dollar Store Guard Killed In Face Mask Brawl


On May 4th the Genesee County prosecutor issued a press release with shocking details of last week’s conflict in Flint, Michigan.

Calvin Munerlyn, a 43-year-old security guard at a Family Dollar store north of downtown Flint refused to let a woman named Sharmel Teague inside the shop since she was not wearing a face mask. This infuriated Teague, who started verbally abusing Munerlyn, eventually spitting at him and leaving.

However, she immediately returned with two men, her husband Larry and son Ramonyea Bishop. The confrontation continued, ending in tragedy: Bishop pulled out a gun and shot Munerlyn in the back of the head, killing him.

All three members of the family received different charges, but each was charged with First-degree premeditated murder. But for now, only Sharmel is in custody: Larry and Ramonyea had fled the scene and are currently sought by police.

Christopher is the head of the Crimes and Accidents News department. He’s a third-generation New Yorker with a passion for journalistic objectivity. Christopher (always "Christopher", never "Chris!) grew up living every kid's dream: his father owned a comic book shop in East Brooklyn. But don't presume that the heroic characters in spandex were the ones who made him fascinated with the Crime vs Punishment concept. Christopher was more interested in the non-superhero comics like Tank Girl and Maus. In the 8th grade he already knew what he was about to do in this life, which was investigative journalism that he would later successfully study in Columbia. Christopher then returned to New York to work as a stringer. Those adrenaline-filled times were equally nerve-wracking and amazing; the only thing that made him settle down was marrying his beloved wife of 10 years. Crime reporting remains Christopher's specialty and biggest passion. That, and not being called "Chris".
