PALM BEACH, Fla. (WFOR) -- An unmasked man pulled a gun on a masked shopper in an apparent confrontation over wearing a facial covering in a Walmart store in Royal Palm Beach on Saturday.
The store’s security video shows the unmasked man pushing an older man in a wheelchair through the store on Saturday afternoon, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The man in the wheelchair pulled a red neckerchief over his mouth in the store.
The video shows a shopper wearing a mask approach the pair and exchange words. That’s when the unmasked man gives the shopper the middle finger before pulling a handgun from his waistband, the sheriff’s office said. The unmasked man then reportedly threatened to kill the man. A young girl reaches for the masked man’s hand to pull him away. Another person is seen trying to intervene.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the suspect was identified, but did not give his name. No further details were immediately released.
