Larry Teague (L), Sharmel Teague (M) and Ramonyea Bishop (R) have all been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of a Family Dollar security guard in Flint, Mich.

*A fourth family member has been charged in the murder of a Family Dollar Store security guard in Flint, Mich., who was fatally shot last week.

We previously reported, Calvin Munerlyn, 43, was shot dead after an altercation on May 1 when he refused to allow a customer’s daughter inside the store because she wasn’t wearing a face mask.

Munerlyn was simply upholding an executive order meant to curb the spread of the potentially novel coronavirus (COVID-19), when he refused to let Sharmel Teague and her daughter into the store without a face covering.

In a news release, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said Sharmel “began yelling at Munerlyn and spit at him and Munerlyn told her to leave the store and instructed a cashier not to serve her.”

Sharmel left the store and returned about 20 minutes later with two men, identified as her husband Larry Teague and her son Ramonyea Bishop. They confronted Munerlyn, and Bishop shot Munerlyn in the back of the head. He was later pronounced dead at a local medical center.

Sharmel, 45, her son Ramonyea, 23, and her husband Larry, 44, have charged with first-degree premeditated murder and felony firearm, while Larry and Bishop reportedly received additional charges related to the shooting.

Sharmel’s daughter, 24-year-old Brya Bishop, was not initially charged, but she reportedly interfered with the investigation. Now she’s facing three felonies: tampering with evidence, lying to police and accessory after the fact, fox2detroit.com reports. She’s currently in custody at the Genesee County Jail.

Sharmel has been arraigned and remains in jail with no bond. She is due in court again on May 14. 

Meanwhile, authorities are still looking for her son and her husband. U.S. Marshals are offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to their arrest.
