Video: How Boardman Sparkle shooting started

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — WKBN has discovered video footage showing how a shooting at a Sparkle grocery store in Boardman, Ohio started on Monday, June 2.

The video shows a man walking out of a store, presumably with goods from the store which authorities accused him of stealing. When a security guard attempts to stop him, the man pushes him aside and runs out of the store.

Coitsville Police arrested Joseph Holmes and Kevin Sabo later that night at a Coistville motel on heroin charges unrelated to the Sparkle incident. Authorities later charged both men with theft.
