PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – Things got heated at a Walmart store in Royal Palm Beach when an unmasked man pulled a gun on a masked shopper in an apparent confrontation over wearing a facial covering.
The store’s security video shows the unmasked man pushing an older man in a wheelchair through the store on Saturday afternoon, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The video shows a shopper wearing a mask approach the pair and exchange words. That’s when the unmasked man gives the shopper the middle finger before pulling a handgun from his waistband, the sheriff’s office said. The unmasked man then reportedly threatened to kill the man.
