In a shocking incident in the US, a family has allegedly murdered a shop guard because he was enforcing mask policy amid coronavirus spread before allowing entry into the shop.
A woman, her husband and son have been charged with killing a security guard who refused entry to the girl because she was not wearing a face covering.
Calvin Munerlyn, 43, was shot in the back of the head on Friday at the Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigan, one of the US states hardest hit by the COVID 19 pandemic, reports BBC.
According to reports, the accused–woman, her husband, son–went to the store after the girl was denied entry and allegedly killed the guard.
