Suspect in Walmart shooting given $1 million bond

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY (KATV) -- The man accused of attempted capital murder for shooting a woman six times inside a Conway Walmart over the weekend is given a $1 million bond.

At the request of the prosecuting attorney's office a $1 million was granted for the 29-year-old man from Conway. With ties to states like California and Florida, the prosecution views Terrell as a flight risk.

Monday Channel Seven obtained the arrest affidavit where inside Terrell tells police why he shot Lori Martin, 42, Saturday night.

Inside the Wal-Mart on Skyline Drive in Conway over the weekend, an unimaginable event caused chaos among shoppers when investigators say 29-year-old Myron Terrell walked in and shot a lady while she was shopping.

"I think it's a reminder that evils exists, and I think we all have to pay attention to what's going on around us," said Faulkner County Chief Deputy Prosecutor, Troy Braswell.

Braswell wasn't able to reveal too many details about its case against Terrell, but gave us the outline of why it happened inside that certain store.

"I can confirm that he was an employee at Walmart. I can also tell you that we believe that she was the target, and this was not just a gentleman walking into a store and firing. We believe she was the target."

According to the arrest affidavit we received a copy of, Terrell "admitted to shooting the victim six times."

When police asked why he targeted Martin, Terrell said "he felt threatened by Mrs. Martin, and she has been harassing him all of his life." However, "he could not give any facts to corroborate his claim."

Martin remains hospitalized and is in stable, but critical condition.

Terrell faces charges of attempted capital murder, possession of a firearm arm and possession of a controlled substance.

He has ties to California, where he received a 36 months probation for a fire arm possession charge, and Florida. His connections to those states gave prosecution reason to consider him a flight risk and request the high bond amount.
