When it comes to shoplifting many companies tell their employees not to chase thieves or put themselves in danger for safety reasons, but according to TMZ, a worker at a Nashville Walgreens did the opposite. 21-year-old team-lead Mitarious Boyd reportedly shot 34-year-old Travonsha Ferguson while trying to stop an alleged theft in progress.

Boyd allegedly admitted to investigators that he fired his weapon at Ferguson and another woman during a chase to their car because they were unloading stolen Walgreens items. Surprisingly he claimed that his life was in danger when one of the women sprayed him with mace. Ferguson who was 7 months pregnant was struck by the gunfire 8 times including twice in each leg and four times in the stomach. Luckily however her baby wasn’t hit and she was rushed to the hospital for an emergency C-section.  Authorities report that she and the baby are both in critical condition.

For now, the D.A. is reviewing the Walgreens employee’s claims, especially his reason for using a firearm. reports that Boyd’s gun was seized and detectives are in possession of his cell phone. At the completion of the investigation, detectives will staff their findings with the District Attorney’s Office for a determination as to whether or not he will face charges.


This story is receiving major attention online with upset people pointing out that the store’s “no chase” policy was ignored.
