Walmart security shoots mother-of-2 shoplifting suspect dead in parking lot as she tries to flee
Daily Mail UK ^ | 8 Dec 2012 | James Nye

A 27-year-old mother of two has been fatally shot by an off-duty sheriff's deputy after he suspected her of shoplifting at a Houston Walmart.

Harris County Sheriff's deputies have said that victim Shelly Frey, Tisa Andrews and Yolanda Craig were stealing when they were confronted by Louis Campbell a 26-year veteran of the force who works as a security guard at the store.

According to Campbell the women ran to their car and when he rushed to open the door, they accelerated away - at which point he fired the deadly shot into the car which hit Frey in the neck.

Tragically, Frey wasn't even supposed to be at a Walmart that evening.

Earlier in the year she pleaded guilty to stealing shirts and a package of meat from another Walmart and as part of her plea arrangement she agreed to never enter Walmart stores again.

Death for shoplifting?

I could have been shot dead in 5th grade.

I assume you folks are not being serious with your responses, at least I hope so. If she was trying to run him over it becomes a different tale. However, my experience with some security guards has left me less than impressed.

Looks like she gets/got her make-up applied at a Maaco® Paint/Body Shop.

Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it.

She kinda looks like Devine the transvestite who used to star in old John Watters movies.

'Shelly was the perfect mom, perfect friend, perfect daughter,' said her father, Shelton Frey.
Hmmm, no mention of the GED or budding DJ star? Guess she wasn't perfect after all.

The article describes the security guard / off-duty cop as running up to the driver's car door or pulling it open, and firing into the car as the driver tried to speed away. Doesn't sound like a good shoot to me, but other prior cases are similar enough that the cop in question probably won't have much to worry about.

The article also says he may have been "knocked off balance" or something, causing the handgun to discharge. Very sketchy, but it sure doesn't sound like a "She was going to run over me..." situation.

I think the real news here is that the “victim,” who is 27 years old, only has children. By 27, I would expect her to have at least 10 or 12.

Well, she won’t have trouble keeping her promise to not go to another Walmart. I would hope that the other two people with her decide they need to make better choices in the future. And, of course, I am sure we’ll have another protest led by Quanell X soon.

Perfect criminal who couldn’t hold to the rules of her prior plea bargain for shoplifting at another Wal Mart earlier this year.

Dad—what did you ACTUALLY KNOW about your ‘daughter’?????

We used to hang horse-thieves. Gotta say, I hate thieves, gangsters, taggers, all the petty criminals that are turning this country into a sewer. I’m not going to feel bad for people who get hurt or killed while doing this sort of thing.

As much as I want to see the lady stopped and prosecuted, what she did was not a capital offense.

The officer should have taken down the license of the vehicle, and passed it on to officers on duty when they arrived.

That being said, this was hardly a perfect mom. Perfect moms don’t expose themselves to danger when they are responsible for children at home.

Perfect daughters don’t expose their parents to unreasonable responsibility if they have to go to jail or worse.

Shelton, when you go out to screw with others, it often backfires.

Good daughters may go out dancing, to eat, to see a movie, just to hang with friends, or other positive things. They also do things that involve their children too. They don’t go out to steal.

I was about to say the same thing. Only a transvesite would wear that much makeup.

They are absolutely serious and post number four is the reason. Very common behavior among a small % of freepers.

This does not sound like a good shoot to me. Legal, maybe, as in TX I think you can use deadly force to protect property (which I support) but shooting in a Wal-mart parking lot? Not a good idea.

There better be more to this story than this. You don’t shoot someone dead just for shoplifting. WalMart is looking at a giant lawsuit here. Talk about an over reaction.

I am in Houston and I saw this on our local news last night. They said the officer was being dragged by the car and feared he was going to go under it and be run over. They showed a photo of his shoes in the parking lot where he was pulled out of them.

If one chooses to shoplift, burgle, or steal one must know there is an inherent hazard of that chosen vocation which includes getting shot...even unto death. We have property rights in this country, at least for now. If you have been a target of serial burglery or theft you realize the police mostly do nothing in recovery of your possessions and it is largely up to you to protect your property.

It is a sad statement that this person, Frey, chose to steal, repeatedly, and that society and common culture has inferred to her that there is ambiguity in whether it is wrong, against-the-law, inherently dangerous to engage in that activity. It should have been so clear to her that she would dare not do such a thing. But, she did, and now many peoples lives, not the least of which her 2 children, will forever be without her. Her choice. Her choices consequences.

And those earrings, which appear to be made from ugly, sequined Mardi Gras neckties from the '70s.
