Police said Alvin Gardner was shot by a security guard outside a Fred’s store in Canton, Mississippi, after being caught stealing a candy bar and fleeing the business in April (video below).
“You can’t pick up your weapon and shoot someone for a candy bar,” Canton Police Chief Otha Brown told WAPT. “That’s just not right.”
Store managers allegedly saw Gardner putting a Snickers candy bar into his pocket on security cameras, so the managers alerted the security guard, Bennie Montgomery.
According to police, Montgomery followed Gardner outside, fired some warning shots, and then shot Montgomery in his right leg.
Gardner reportedly passed out because of the loss of blood and was later treated at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
