— Investigators are searching for a man that fatally shot a security guard who was working at a Greensboro grocery store.

Police said in a news release that 51-year-old Anthony C. Smith, of Winston-Salem, was working inside a Food Lion store Saturday night when an armed man approached him, shot him once in the head and fled with the guard's weapon.

Witnesses told investigators that the man didn't try to rob the store and there did not seem to be a disturbance prior to the shooting.

Police are looking for a man captured in surveillance photos. He is described as being in his early 30s and between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall.

Jim Stevens, the CEO of Guard-One Protective Services, the company Smith worked for, is offering a $10,000 reward.

    When your narrative is no longer valid, you just lie or withhold the facts. Why do you think our nation is in the shape it is? Radicals in the press and Universities, and the mass of sheepies that could care a less.

    Apparently they'd rather promote a politically correct agenda than see a cold blooded murderer brought to justice.
