LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) - Two Walmart workers are suspended with pay after a man suspected of shoplifting DVD players at an Atlanta-area store died following a confrontation with workers.
The man was pronounced dead yesterday after the altercation outside the store in Lithonia.
The company says two workers were suspended with pay, and a security contractor will no longer work at the store.
A Walmart spokeswoman says no amount of merchandise is worth someone's life. She says workers are trained to disengage from situations that would put themselves or others at risk.
A police report shows the middle-aged man was caught shoplifting two DVD players from the store about 1:30 yesterday morning, but three workers caught him and had an altercation in the parking lot.
Police arrived to find the store workers on top of the man, who was unresponsive and bleeding from the nose and mouth.
He was later pronounced dead at DeKalb Medical-Hillandale hospital.
The company said it was reviewing what happened to determine whether proper policies were followed.
