 UPDATE: Suspected Phone Charger Shoplifters Who Killed 26-Yr-Old Home Depot Employee, Are Arrested…Had Baby In Getaway Vehicle

The suspects in a fatal Home Depot shoplifting-turned-shooting have been arrested by law enforcement.

100 Percent Fed Upreports – On Tuesday, a 26-year-old Home Depot worker named Blake Mohs was shot dead while attempting to stop a shoplifter in the lawless state of California, just east of San Francisco.

The suspects, 32-year-old Benicia Knapps and 31-year-old David Guillory, attempted to steal a phone charger from a Home Depot in Pleasanton, California. Knapps is a licensed security guard with a criminal history.

The couple appears to be dating, according to their Facebook profiles.

Mohs was working in the loss prevention center when he attempted to stop the in-store theft.

After noticing the attempted theft, Mohs confronted Knapps, who was “determined to exit without paying,” according to Pleasanton police Lt. Erik Silacci.

Knapps pulled out a handgun and fired at the Home Depot employee.

The suspect then fled with her two-year-old child, who was waiting in the car during the theft attempt.

Mohs was found bleeding inside the Home Depot and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The brave Home Depot employee was a Boy Scout leader and was engaged to fiancée Kasey Silligman. They were set to be married on August 12 at the campsite where the couple met while volunteering with the Scouts.
