GA woman reacts to husband’s death at Wal-Mart

(WTVM) -

A Georgia woman is stunned by the death of her husband who died at a DeKalb County, Georgia Wal-Mart early Sunday morning.

According to the police report, Vidal Calloway was suspected of shoplifting two DVD players from a Wal-Mart in Lithonia and was stopped by two store employees and a security guard.

When police arrived, all three were holding Calloway down.

As he was being handcuffed the officer realized Calloway was unresponsive and bleeding from the nose and mouth.

Calloway's wife Fatimah is shocked at his death over something she says was not worth it.

"It took three people to hold him down and choke hold him. How can you do that?" said Fatimah. "You know, one person with no weapon? All for two DVD players?"

The two employees have been suspended without pay and the security officer is no longer working for Wal-Mart.

A Wal-Mart spokesperson called it a sad situation and said no amount of merchandise is worth someone's life.
