A 27-year-old mother of two has been fatally shot by an off-duty sheriff's deputy after he suspected her of shoplifting at a Houston Walmart.
Harris County Sheriff's deputies have said that victim Shelly Frey, Tisa Andrews and Yolanda Craig were stealing when they were confronted by Louis Campbell a 26-year veteran of the force who works as a security guard at the store.
According to Campbell the women ran to their car and when he rushed to open the door, they accelerated away - at which point he fired the deadly shot into the car which hit Frey in the neck.

Tragically, Frey wasn't even supposed to be at a Walmart that evening.
Earlier in the year she pleaded guilty to stealing shirts and a package of meat from another Walmart and as part of her plea arrangement she agreed to never enter Walmart stores again.

Family: Mother suspected of shoplifting at Walmart didnt deserve to die
.... and if you're a responsibe parent, you don't go out at night and steal from stores or try to run-over people.
That’ll learn her.
I see she had enough money for nose jewelry.
To bad he missed the other two.
Response: Good for the security guard.
According to this story and others, the “security guard” was an off duty police officer and was in uniform. It’s possible that the officer thought he was going to be run over. We don’t know for sure because writers seem to get foggy when it comes to details that could justify the officer’s actions.
It's Texas. They'll probably be charged with murder for her death.
A few more incidents like this in select locations around the country and it will be safer to shop at Wal Mart.
What part of taking down a licence plate vs use of deadly force did this BOZO not understand? This lady may be a shop lifter, but last I noticed it did not carry the death penalty.
Killed for a couple of steaks... wonderful...
Guess they train them Off duty cops well on how to kill women, children and dogs. If a citizen should shoot a fleeing theif that poses no threat to their life, they could end up in prison for murder.
I am disgusted at how little life is held as treasure these days. Do something people don’t like and you get the thumbs down in the Arena.
Stupid, stupid man.
EBT FAIL sneak preview. I don’t want to be anywhere near a WalMart when the SHTF. After that security guard runs out of rounds, he’ll be beaten to a bloody pulp by the mob of rabid Obamites grabbing their “fair share”.
Fair point. I guess she could've swiped the makeup and hair color as well. I'd guess that some Mexican influence is seeping into "beauty parlors" in the Texas 'hood, though, as evidenced by those Sharpie eyebrows.
The guy was standing in the door, she was driving away. First off, listen to you guys. Kill her the *****! Good riddance! Get a grip guys! This guy was firing at a fleeing car in a walmart shopping lot. No backstop for his bullets! Except a few people pushing shopping carts I guess. This was police state slaughter and you all are jumping on the band wagon. For shame.
I hope that you mean something different from what that says...
Note that the source of this news is Great Britain—not an American source!!!
Who believes that the media isn’t in bed with Obama??? Ha Ha.
