FLINT, MI – A Michigan security guard is dead today after he was murdered for trying to enforce Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order to force customers to wear face coverings while shopping. Calvin James Munerlyn, 43, was working security at the East 5th Avenue Dollar General store when at approximately 1:40 pm on May 1st, Munerlyn got into a verbal altercation with Sharmel Lashe Teague to wear a facemask while inside the store. Teague began yelling at Munerlyn and spit at him. Officer Munerlyn asked Teague to leave the store and instructed the cashier not to ring up her order.
Teague left the store and returned a short time later with two men, Larry Teague and Ramonyea Bishop. The men entered the store and confronted the security guard about the earlier altercation with Sharmel Teague. According to police, Bishop pulled out a gun and shot Munerlyn in the back of the head. Bishop is the son of the Teague’s who are husband and wife. Munerlyn was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at Hurley Medical Center.
“Duper [Munerlyn] was a hard working, father and husband who lost his life while doing his job securing the place of business and asking all customers to wear a mask for our own safety as well as others. He leaves behind 8 amazing kids, a super loving wife, & his wonderful mother,” said Courtney Cabine.
