Off Duty Deputy Working Walmart Security Shoots and Kills Mother of Two
HOUSTON – A mother of two who was fatally shot by a deputy after she was suspected of shoplifting at Walmart didn’t deserve to die, her family said.
Harris County Sheriff’s deputies said Tiasa Andrews, Yolanda Craig, and Shelly Frey were stealing from a Walmart Thursday night. They said the women ran off when Louis Campbell, an off-duty deputy, confronted them. Campbell, a 26-year veteran of the force, works security at the store located at the 10400 block of the North Freeway.
Campbell chased the women to the parking lot, where they tried driving off. At one point, he said he was between the car door and the driver’s seat and feared for his safety.
He fired, striking Frey in the neck. She died at an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Greens Parkway minutes afterward.
