Walmart Employee Facing Charges After Shooting Co-Workers Window For Winning Award

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Wal-Mart employee is facing charges after allegedly shooting a co-worker’s car window because she won an employee-of-the-month award.

Sonia Diogene told Broward Sheriff’s deputies that Willie Mitchell became angry after she received the award and started harassing her, saying he had helped her numerous times and that he was the one deserving recognition.

According to an arrest report, Diogene told her supervisor that she repeatedly felt threatened by Mitchell. Then a Dec. 1 surveillance video showed Mitchell pulling alongside Diogene’s car, shooting out a window and driving away. Diogene was not in the car at the time.

Mitchell is charged with discharging a firearm from a vehicle. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney. A message left for a Wal-Mart spokesman was not immediately returned.
