SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (WREG) — Martez Abram, the man accused in a deadly shooting in a Southaven, Mississippi Walmart in 2019, has been sentenced to death.
Abram was found guilty Thursday of two counts of capital murder and one count of attempted murder.
Two Walmart employees, 38-year-old Brandon Gales and 40-year-old Anthony Brown, were killed in the shooting. A police officer also was shot, but survived.
Video from inside the courtroom shows Abram holding his head and trying to look away as he watched what seemed to be a video of the tragic events.
When Abram was asked if he was the person in the video and if he shot the victims, he said “yes”.
