Shopper Heard Someone in Bathroom Loading a Gun

Milliani Mares, Writer

A shopper who entered an Atlanta supermarket bathroom told police he saw an AR-15 style rifle and heard what he believed was the sound of someone loading guns in a bathroom stall on March 25, 2021.

 

The witness rushed out of the bathroom and told the staff of the Publix Supermarket. When police arrived soon after, they arrested a suspect as he was exiting the bathroom with six guns in his possession.

 

The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Rico Marley, now faces a slew of charges related to the incident, which came just days after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.
