Walmart employee shot and killed by alleged shoplifter

Authorities have identified the Wal-Mart worker who they say was shot and killed by a suspected shoplifter outside of Atlanta.

Capitan Thomas Bartugon described what happened: "he actually got in the lobby area past all points of sale, got past the first door, was about to go our the exterior doors to the parking lot when he was stopped".

Ferguson, who was unarmed, was "unresponsive and unconscious" when he was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died from his injuries, according to 11 Alive. The suspect pulled a gun and fired at least one shot that hit Ferguson. The suspect used a.380 caliber pistol to shoot the store employee.

Staffers at the Walmart store said in a statement Monday that they will continue to support law enforcement in its ongoing investigation.

An older model, dark red, four-door Saturn or Honda that police in Lilburn, Georgia, say was driven by the man suspected of shooting a Walmart employee on Sunday, April 10, 2016.

Police said the suspect was attempting to shoplift three flat-screen televisions when the employee approached him. He was wearing a blue dress shirt and dark colored trousers at the time of the homicide.

Anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts is asked to call Lilburn Police at Investigator.
