Mississippi governor signs extradition for accused Walmart gunman
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The governor of Mississippi has signed extradition papers for the man charged with killing two people in a Southaven Walmart in July.
Martez Abram, a former employee who had been fired from that Walmart, is accused of killing a manager and employee and injuring a police officer July 30.
Abram was injured in the chaotic incident and was taken to a hospital in Memphis.
Gov. Phil Bryant signed the warrant and sent it to Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s desk to be signed, a spokesperson for the city of Southaven said Monday. Lee must sign the order because Abram is held in Tennessee, but will return to Mississippi to face charges.
