Three people were injured.
A dispute over the need to wear masks in public places ended on Monday with a shooting at an American supermarket in the suburbs of Atlanta (Georgia). According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, a local independent detective agency, one person was shot and three people, including the shooter, were injured.
According to a report posted on the bureau’s website, a certain 30-year-old Victor Lee Tucker, who went to the supermarket, argued with the cashier “about his mask.” He left the store without buying anything, then returned and shot the cashier. The county sheriff’s deputy, who was in the supermarket after hours, tried to prevent the crime – a shootout broke out between him and Tucker. As a result, both men were injured; in addition, one of the bullets hit another cashier.
Police arrested Tucker as he tried to flee the scene. The shooter and the deputy were hospitalized, and the second cashier was treated on the spot.
