A 27-year-old mother of two has been fatally shot by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy after he suspected her of shoplifting at a Houston Walmart.
Harris County Sheriff’s deputies have said that victim Shelly Frey, Tisa Andrews and Yolanda Craig were stealing when they were confronted by Louis Campbell a 26-year veteran of the force who works as a security guard at the store.
According to Campbell the women ran to their car and when he rushed to open the door, they accelerated away – at which point he fired the deadly shot into the car which hit Frey in the neck.

Shelly Frey (left and right) was shot in the neck and died after failing to stop for an off-duty sheriff’s deputy in Houston, Texas
Security at the store on the 14000 block of the North Freeway had noticed the three women ‘stuffing items inside their purses’ and notified Campbell, who was working an extra job that evening.
Investigators with Harris County said the three women even attempted to pay for some small items to act as a cover for the shoplifted ones.
After chasing Frey and the other two women to their car, Campbell opened the door and commanded Frey to get out. But she refused, officials said

Andrews began to drive away while the deputy was standing between the open door and the driver’s seat.
‘She threw it in reverse and tried to run over the deputy,’ said Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Deputy Thomas Gilliland.
‘He confronted the suspects at exit of the store before they left. One female wouldn’t stop, struck the deputy with her purse, ran off.’
‘I think it knocked him off balance and, in fear of his life and being ran over, he discharged his weapon at that point.’

Tiasa Andrews, Yolanda Craig were arrested at 1300 block of Greens Parkway where their friend Shelly Frey had died from her gunshot wounds

Inside the car as it was speeding away were two small children – investigators have said that they were not Frey’s children.
Gilliland said it was clear that the deputy was law enforcement.
‘He was clearly marked in uniform as a Harris County deputy. And identified himself as the suspects were leaving the establishment,’ said Gilliland to KHOU.Com
Despite the shooting, the women fled but eventually they stopped at The Worthington at the Beltway apartments in the 1300 block of Greens Parkway.
Paramedics from the Houston Fire Department arrived to try and save Frey, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
‘Shelly was the perfect mom, perfect friend, perfect daughter,’ said her father, Shelton Frey.
He said that his daughter had moved to Houston after Hurricane Katrina to start a new life, but the amount of work she could do was limited by her two-year-old who has sickle cell anemia.

The deceased’s mother Sharon Wilkerson was devastated that the deputy fired into a car with two small children inside and killed her daughter
‘Why couldn’t you just shoot the tire, shoot the window?’ said her mother Sharon Wilkerson. ‘Was it that serious?’
She added that even if her daughter had committed a crime, she did not deserve to die and she worries now for her two young grandchildren.
‘How do I tell these children she’s not coming back,’ said Sharon.
‘To me, it should never (have) happened. I wish the officer didn’t shoot her. I wish he shot her tires just to slow her down. That’s a mother you know. And now they have to figure out what to do with the kids,’ said Angel Gaines, a neighbor.
Kesha Sapp, a woman who knew Frey, agreed.
‘What that look like with him shooting with the darn kids in the car? There were kids in the car with them. Why is he shooting at the car? Come on now, that makes him look bad. That don’t even look right,’ said Sapp.
Both Andrews and Craig, the two other women allegedly involved, have been charged with shoplifting.
Tragically, Frey wasn’t even supposed to be at a Walmart that evening.
Earlier in the year she pleaded guilty to stealing shirts and a package of meat from another Walmart and as part of her plea arrangement she agreed to never enter Walmart stores again.
Deputy Campbell is on three days paid leave as is standard protocol. He’s been with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for 26 years.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Homicide Unit, Office of the Inspector General and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office will investigate this incident. The case will be turned over to a grand jury.
Walmart offered the following statement: ‘This is a tragic situation and we recognize this is a difficult time for all parties involved. We’re committed to working with law enforcement and providing any information we have as they determine the facts of the case. Because this is an active investigation, any specific details of the incident should come from law enforcement.
‘We hire off duty officers to provide security to some of our stores. While we have policies in place for our associates to disengage from situations that might put them or others in harm’s way, off-duty officers working at a WM store are authorized to act in accordance with their department’s code of conduct.’

    What a way to lose your life…him coulda shoot out di tire or inna di air or something…Walmart nah pay him enough fi justify killing somebody. However, everybody a stress how di two small kids were in the car-but nobody nah sey dem careless mumma lef dem inna di car by demself fi go inna Walmart go tief :hoax2

  • EbonyLolita says:

    No sah! None of dem items were worth killing that girl. A tief she did a tief. She neva kill nor harm somebody. Graham vs Conner is what is used in NYC. Using Deadly Physical Force has to be reasonable & necessary. Overall objective reasonableness is what is the main issue. Objective reasonableness is from the mindset of an OFFICER , not a regular layperson. So Texas looks like they use the same protocol b/c you nuh seeh how dem seh when the oman lick him wid di purse he was knocked of balance & “feared for his life.” A jury will let him off b/c of THAT alone. Trust me di man will get off, but the oman dead & gone. Sorry fi di pickney inna dis. :sorry

  • I will wait until the rest of the story comes to fruition cause me never deh deh. And it might have been a case where she was told to stop the car as the police officer had the door open. She refused drove off and put him in danger at which time he fell into a panicked mode and then shot his gun.

    Of course there is great difficulty in justifying killing during petty crimes, but a lot of people fail to understand that during the undertakings of petty crimes many petty criminals become very violent, and it becomes difficult for the victims involved to mentally assess the situation. When one is violated during a crime – petty or not it is still a criminal act, thereby unsettling nerves, sending blood pressures through the roof, pumping heart rates enormously, etc.

    So like mi seh mi a wait fi hear the whole story. But uno fi tap thief and go find wuk. Imagine to rass you have you daughter them with you a go pan thiefing spree!!! RIP but she went lu.

  • Too much says:

    This story is sad, but u know, u just mustn’t thief. A man steal in JA many times if them hol him him get beaten o death. There they shoot. Don’t go in the people country and go theif, u mustn’t do that. A bad example to set for ur kids, and to think she was caught before….she’s not even a good thief. RIP lady, u learnt a very hard lesson and now ur family will pay or it. I really am sad to hear that she put herself in that situation to make that happen.

  • Moor N Learning says:

    These devils feel like they are loosing their country, so Moors and Queens need to heed these murders as warning. Moors and other people, the so called minority, are not even a combined 40% of the US population but the Europeans are loosing the country and votes.

    The news pundits sell this propaganda also, to create division among poor people. There is only one race, the human race. Skin color and all other traits are genetic mutation not a different race. Science is geared towards the climate and evolution, monkey vs man; according to these Europeans. However disregarded when science points to the first man or woman on the planet and where civilization developed.

    They stole the country and will never give it up to anyone. The President brought fear so they are trying hard to reverse gains made centuries ago. Look at the courts, affirmative action and the voting rights act is in the supreme court. So borthers and sisters need to be on high alert.

  • BABYGIRL says:

    Yes she very wrong fi tief de people dem items and mi hate when unu do dem things, unu just mek black people look bad. Now yuh loose yuh life fi probably less than a $100 stolen items. The off duty cop should still be more responsible wid his firearm there were kids in the car, what if the bullet miss the kaliss muma and hit the child instead, yes she put her kids life endanger but as a police officer more responsibilty is placed on you to use discretion….blow out the tires dem, get license plate# and call it in dem wudda ketch dem without casualities…..This is sad!


    I agree wid u babygirl…the fact that there were kids in the car , should have made the officer SHOW SUM RESTRAINT!!!…THATS THE PART THAT DISTURBS ME…

  • black and white says:

    the article said the officer did not see the children….not only black ppl steal….white ppl steal too…i’ve seen many times when white ppl steal in stores…and whne they get caught…they claim they forgot they had it…. Texas is a racist state period!!!!…..anyone that is not white will be prosecuted to the extent of law….also executed… non-whites better take heed…jim crow inna new age and time…..but walmart out of all stores too…things cheap…..poor children…..she should of been doing something more productive with them…..instead of taking them on a stealing spree…..the officer will get away because when an officer state he was in danger and felt distressed not even his pension he will loose…..she was not suppose to be in there in the first place! RIP…bad choices….such a sad consquence…..these children will suffer….God will carry them and protect them!!!!!!

  • black and white says:

    and her idiot friends took her to an apartment complex….they should of taken her to the hospital……

  • Jules says:

    I feel it for the young lady cawsen two likkle souls left behind on dem own and one a dem hab a serious sickniss. it will be difficult because di poor grandparents may nuh hab di strength and energy fi handle an ill child.

    If unno nuh hab it, left it alone. Guh Salvation Army, and charity groups fi assistance, dem will meck sure ur kids get gifts fi di holidays and even gib unno a grocery basket suh unno can have a good holiday dinna. Dere is no shame in taking a hand out if you low. Bill Clinton mother did deh pon welfare and shi raised a President a di US awfa it. J.K Rowling did deh pon welfare to, and now she is a billionaire, and an award winning author. As long as u nuh gib up u dreams and ongle use it as a help and not for a lifetime, is awrite. Chu pride and greed some a wi a lose wi life, lose wi pickney and lose wi dignity.

    teef or not but jesas

  • Just Asking? says:

    So far it seems as thou the mother go give away her fucking life for bullshit! If the officer open the door, why the fuck she press the gas? Somebody please explain that bullshit. Second: She knew she had small children in the car, you really mean to say, she gone fucking thief and jump and run from police when she had kids in the fucking car. Bitch deserve what the fuck she get. Call it what it is. And her mother need to shut the fuck up. When her daughter was robbing shit, why the mother never babysit the fucking children? Now everybody vex with the fucking police. Lesson learned! Go look a fucking job instead of stealing shit that the poor store owners struggle to sell! If she was in one of those countries like Singapore,we wouldn’t be hearing shit when they done chop off her fucking sticky fingers. Who don’t like my comment can go to hell as well.

  • I’m sure when the officer flew open the door and they accelerated the gas that the officer did not know there was children in the vehicle. If the door is open and they took off that means the officer was very close to the vehicle and his or her ass could of been runned over. I’m sure the police took that as a threat when they fired the shot. No one would fire a gun into a car knowing kids were in there. And if the police shot out the tire everybody in that car could of end up dead.

    The only person who put those children lives at risk is their mother. How could she have taken her children with her on a stealing spree? Smh. If u decide that stealing is your career u should be well decided to accept what possible reactions can come out of u going into some1’s business place or home to steal – ie getting a buck shot in ur ass.

  • Riches says:

    The children in the car were not hers! anyways this is a sad tale, i think it is excessive force, but as someone said had he shot the tyres, it may have been a worse tragedy. A lesson to all the clutchers dem
