FLINT, Michigan (WJRT) – The fate of three Flint residents charged in the May 1, 2020 shooting of a Family Dollar security guard is in the hands of a jury.
Sharmell Teague, her husband Larry Teague, and Sharmell’s son Lamonia Bishop were charged with first-degree murder and felony firearms in the shooting death of 47-year-old Calvin “Duper” Munnarlin.
A jury listened to 15 days of testimony, in which Genesee County prosecutors say the three conspired to shoot Mnarrin after an argument with Sharmell Teague at a store. According to testimonies, the ordeal began when Sharmell Teague and his daughter Bairra Bishop stopped by Family Dollar on his Fifth Avenue in Flint. Bhaira Bishop, who was not wearing a mask at the time, was told by Munarrin that a mask was required to enter the store as per the store’s policy during the Covid 19 crisis. As they exited the store, Sharmell Teague was seen in her store security video spatting her on Munnarrin, when he chased her in her parking lot and knocked her over. .
After an argument, Sharmell Teague’s husband and son are seen entering the store. He said it was to confront and, in some cases, beat the added security guards. The sole witness for the defense, Bishop Lamonia, testified that he only wanted to defuse the situation before his stepfather got to the store. He is seen entering the security video just before his stepfather. He drew a gun and shot a guard in the head once.
Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Brian Pickell randomly dismissed four alternate jurors before hearing. A jury may consider a misdemeanor of second-degree murder.
Jury deliberations are scheduled to resume Thursday morning.
