1 dead, 2 injured after Georgia grocery store mask dispute

Two people are wounded and one person is dead following a shooting on Monday at a Georgia grocery store that was sparked by an argument over the store’s COVID-19 mask policy.

The incident occurred at a Big Bear grocery in DeKalb County, Georgia at around 1:10 p.m., according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The shooter, Victor Lee Tucker, Jr., 30, reportedly got into an argument with a cashier over the store’s mask policy as he was checking out.

“Tucker left the store without making his purchase, but immediately returned inside. Tucker walked directly back to the cashier, pulled out a handgun and shot her,” the GBI said in a statement. The cashier was declared dead after being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
