The store clerk killed the execution style. Suspect held without bail – AsAmNews

A suspect shot and killed a store clerk in the back of the head, even though that clerk willingly handed over cash from his cash register, detectives in Tupelo, Mississippi say.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that 26-year-old Chris Copeland is facing charges in the murder of 33-year-old Parmvir Singh.

“With 27 years in law enforcement, this may be one of the worst I’ve ever seen,” Police Chief John Quaka told the Post Millennial. “The victim was literally executed in the back of the head inside his shop where he was trying to make a living. It’s just outrageous. The prosecutor said it best – ‘it’s monstrous “.

The suspect arrived at the Chevron gas station store and asked Singh to hand over the money. The employee also opened the safe.

The suspect can be seen on surveillance video demanding that Singh get down on one knee. The shooter then jumps over the counter and shoots in Singh’s run style.

Singh would arrive at the hospital in serious condition and die a few hours later.

The Journal also reports that an employee at the nearby dollar store spotted Copeland wearing the exact same thing as the man seen on Singh’s video shoot. An employee recognized Copeland and identified him to police.

Police showed up at Copeland’s last known address with a search warrant. Later, he approached the officers, and the police arrested him without incident.

He faces life without parole or death. He was on probation and also had an outstanding warrant. He has a heavy criminal past.
