City: Margate, FL
Date: September 2012
A loss-prevention employee was shot and killed at a Walmart while trying to stop a suspect who allegedly stole $16 worth of undershirts. 22-year-old Terrell Johnson attempted to steal the package of undershirts, and 49-year-old Lewis Jhon attempted to detain him. During the struggle, Jhon was shot near the store's entrance.
Jhon was pronounced dead at North Broward Medical Center. Police found Johnson's body a few blocks away from the Walmart, dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Jhon, a retired corrections officer from New York, had worked at the Walmart for three years. He was only present that day to shop with his wife.
