Taft Residents Mourn Wrongful Death of Huntsville Walmart Employee

Residents of the tiny community of Taft, Tennessee, are mourning the wrongful death of the 25-year-old Walmart employee who was shot Monday, December 6, by the estranged ex-boyfriend of a co-worker.

The shocking murder in the parking lot of the University Drive Walmart in Huntsville was apparently the result of domestic violence. The intended victim of the intentional act of brutality was grazed by another bullet during the shooting, which occurred after she had broken up with the shooter.

"She said if she ever left him, she was afraid of what he'd do," said the owner of a local grocery store in Taft on Tuesday. "She said she would have left him a long time ago if she wasn't so scared."

Both the shooter and the young Walmart employee who was killed in the shooting were residents of Taft, although the shooter had not lived there for long. The shooter's ex-girlfriend had also lived in Taft for a period of time, so all three were well known to residents.

After the violent events on Monday, the shooter was found at his Taft home. He had shot himself, and he died overnight at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
