Local authorities reported that the fight occurred in a supermarket in Decantor, in a small town on the outskirts of Atlanta, the capital of the state of Georgia. The man, identified by police officers as Victor Lee Tucker, got into an argument with the cashier over wearing face masks at the store.
The 30-year-old finally left the store without shopping in it. It looked like it would spread to the bones…
Shootout in the United States. Security guard rushed to help
But the quarrel returned this time with a weapon in his hand. First, he shoots the cashier, then engages in a gunfight with a local deputy sheriff who worked overtime in the store as a security guard.
The hero guard stopped the attacker with his own injury, but he himself was wounded in the shooting. The condition of all victims is stable and does not raise any concerns.
Unfortunately, the life of the cashier could not be saved. The condition of the other victims is stable and does not cause concern. However, according to the local mayor, had it not been for the position of the bodyguard, there could have been more casualties.
Masks are still worn in the United States
Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did relax recommendations on wearing masks in May, the practice is a little different. Covering the face and nose is still required in many stores and elsewhere in the United States.
It is worth noting that in recent weeks, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the United States has continued to fall systematically: a month ago, the country recorded an average of more than 33,000 cases. Infection per day, day 14 thousand.
