The debate over the use of masks ends with one dead and three injured
Just last Monday, a cashier at a supermarket in the Atlanta area (USA) died. Three other people were injured in a shooting that arose from a discussion about masks inside the store.
DeKalb County Sheriff Melody Meddox said the shooting took place inside the Big Bear supermarket in Decatur when several people were inside the business. In the middle of the incident, a cashier was shot dead by a man.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the client was identified as Victor Lee Tucker, Jr., 30, of Palmetto, Georgia. The agency said initial information showed Tucker had an argument with the cashier and left the store without making his purchase but immediately. He returned to the supermarket.
"Tucker walked right back to the teller, pulled out a gun, and shot her," the Georgia Bureau of Investigation wrote in the news release.
According to local media, the woman who died worked in the store for two years and was in her 40s.
The sheriff said a reserve agent, who worked part-time to secure the store, opened fire on the suspect, injuring both. DeKalb County Police Department officers arrested Tucker as he tried to leave through the supermarket's front door.
Maddox said the officer was shot twice but was wearing a bulletproof vest and was taken to a medical facility where he was stable. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Tucker's condition was stable.
