Suspects wanted in killing of Family Dollar security guard over face mask in custody

Two men wanted in connection with the shooting death of a Michigan Family Dollar security guard are both in police custody, the Genesee County prosecutor announced Friday.

Ramonyea Bishop, 24, was arrested in Bay City, Michigan, on Friday, and his stepfather Larry Teague, 44, was arrested in Houston, Texas, on Thursday along with two people who helped him flee Michigan after the shooting, prosecutor David Leyton said.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, security guard Calvin Munerlyn, 43, was shot and killed last Friday after telling a customer she had to wear a mask inside the Family Dollar, per orders from Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer. The customer’s mother, Sharmel Teague, 45, who was wearing a mask, allegedly argued with Munerlyn and spit at him.

Teague and her daughter, Byra Bishop, left the store, but her husband and son — Larry Teague and Ramonyea Bishop — returned to the store and continued the altercation. Authorities said Ramonyea Bishop shot Munerlyn, and both men fled.

Sharmel Teague was arraigned on first-degree murder and felony firearm charges on Tuesday. On Thursday, Brya Bishop, 24, was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence, lying to police, and being an accessory to a felony after the fact.

Larry Teague and Ramonyea Bishop also face first-degree murder and felony firearm charges. Teague is currently being held in the Harris County jail in Texas, Leyton said, along with the two other people he identified as Laura Ann Mitchell and Terrence Devon Finley. Leyton said that Mitchell and Finley rented a vehicle in Flint and drove Bishop to Texas, where they bought him clothes at a Walmart and rented a room for him at a motel.

Mitchell and Finley will be charged in Michigan with obstruction of justice, harboring a felon, and being an accessory after the fact to a felony. Mitchell faces an addition charge of lying to a police officer, Leyton said, and the district attorney in Harris County, Texas, has also charged them with hindering the apprehension of a murder suspect.

Teague is expected at a hearing on Monday, Leyton said. Mitchell and Finley do not yet have court dates.

Bishop was taken into custody Friday afternoon at a three-unit house in Bay City, the prosecutor said. “He was taken into custody without incident,” he said. “A woman who was the renter of the unit cooperate with police, assisting with his arrest.”

Leyton praised law enforcement officials and the public for their assistance in locating “these very dangerous suspects.”
