Walmart fight leads to stabbing

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Pelham man remains in the Thomas County Jail Tuesday accused of stabbing another man at the Thomasville Walmart late Sunday night.

Police say 47-year-old Calvin Thomas and 22-year-old Rashard Murray got into a fight at the store.

Investigators aren't sure how it started, but they say it ended when Thomas stabbed Murray with a pocket knife. "Places such as Walmart and businesses for the public, they're places where people go with their families to shop and we will have zero tolerance for this kind of activity at our businesses where we have children and families out shopping," said Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.

Police say Murray remains in Archbold Memorial Hospital tonight. The investigation is ongoing and charges against both men are pending.
