Walmart Shooting Victim Still Critical, Suspect Charged With Attempted Capital Murder

CONWAY, AR -- The Faulkner County prosecutor released the arrest report for the 29-year-old man police say is responsible for shooting a mother and wife Monday at a Walmart in Conway.

Myron Terrell appeared in court Monday afternoon, facing attempted capital murder charges for shooting Lori Martin. He was given a $1 million bond.

"According to what we know, Mr. Terrell had clocked out of work and then the shooting occurred," said La Tresha Woodruff with Conway Police.

Law enforcement says the Walmart employee had no connection to his victim. Martin was standing in line with her husband at the time of the shooting.

"We don't know at this point if he went out to get his gun or if he had it the whole time," Woodruff said.

According to the arrest affidavit, Terrell admitted to shooting Martin six times.

He told detectives he felt threatened by her and that she had harassed him his whole life, however, he was unable to give any facts to back up his claim.

The affidavit also said Terrell told detectives he knew what he had done and that there would be consequences.

Police said they acted quickly to make an arrest in the case and are thankful the shooting did not have more victims.

"It was bad enough one person got shot," Woodruff said. "But there were several other people in line other people in the store."

For now, the community is getting behind Martin and praying for her recovery.
