Alleged Shoplifter Dies After Confrontation with Georgia Walmart Employees on Black Friday

The Black Friday disgust rolls on. An unidentified man who got into a confrontation with Walmart employees in Lithonia, GA, on Black Friday has died. Two employees and a security guard followed the man outside after he allegedly stole two two DVD players, and by the time police arrived to make an arrest, the three were on top of him. After placing the man in handcuffs, the officer realized that he was unresponsive and had blood covering his face and mouth.

Speaking with The Atlantic Journal-Constitution, a Walmart spokesperson said "No amount of merchandise is worth someone's life. Associates are trained to disengage from situations that would put themselves or others at risk."
