Walmart shooting suspect awaiting mental evaluation

Posted: March 19, 2014 - 5:44pm

Pre-trial for Myron Terrell has been continued to May 5 pending a mental evaluation requested by the defense.

Terrell, 30, 1816 Hogan Lane in Conway, was arrested Feb. 1 on an attempted capital murder charge after he was identified as the subject who shot a woman who was waiting to check out at Walmart on Skyline Drive.

According to witnesses and the prosecutor’s affidavit, the victim, Lori Martin, was shot multiple times.

Terrell told police he shot Martin six times because he felt threatened by her and “she has been harassing him all of his life.”

Police said he could not corroborate his claims and did not explain how he was threatened or harassed, but he indicated he knew what he had done and that there would be consequences.

Terrell left immediately after shooting Martin, according to police. He was located a short time later at his apartment on Hogan Lane.

Terrell faces three felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, capital murder and simultaneous possession of drugs and a firearm.

He is still in custody on a $1 million bond.

La Tresha Woodruff, public information officer for the Conway Police Department, said Wednesday there is still no reason to believe Terrell knew Martin or had past dealings with her.

Terrell was a maintenance employee at Walmart.

The article leads us to believe she had passed... I dearly hope not.

You're right, Budnmud, I

You're right, Budnmud, I hadn't read it carefully. I hope they meant attempted capital murder.
