North Carolina man arrested in death of Home Depot worker, 83, shoved during theft
Police in North Carolina have arrested the man they say was caught on video last year as he shoplifted at a Home Depot and assaulted an elderly employee, who later died of his injuries.
Terry McAnthony McMillian Jr., 26, of Durham, was taken into custody without incident Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder and robbery, the Hillsborough Police Department said.
McMillian allegedly shoved the then-82-year-old worker, whom family later identified as Gary Rasor, as he left the Hillsborough store’s garden area with a shopping cart holding three pressure washers at around 10:40 a.m. on Oct. 18.
