Police: New security camera got shooting on video

August 2, 1997 GMT

LEESVILLE, La. (AP) _ A WalMart security camera was rolling when a man knocked his estranged wife to the ground in the store’s parking lot, stood over her, and shot her four times, police said.

Angela Knox was pronounced dead at 5 a.m. Friday, shortly after the shooting.

``Basically, it appears this guy was stalking his wife and then he executed her,″ Police Chief Bobby D. Hickman said.

Anthony A. Knox, 34, of Leesville, was booked on second-degree murder charges.

Two days earlier, Knox had been served with court papers telling him that Mrs. Knox, 32, had asked for a divorce and a restraining order against him, Hickman said.

Knox followed his wife to the store, which is open 24 hours a day, and sat in the parking lot waiting for her to return to her car, he said.

Witnesses told police Mrs. Knox was putting bags in the car when Knox approached her from behind.

WalMart Corp. installed four video surveillance cameras last week at the Leesville store, and one of those cameras taped the attack and shooting.
