Anwar Ghazali Bio
Anwar Ghazali is a Tennessee store clerk. He has been found guilty of murder after he shot dead a 17-year-old boy who was caught stealing a $2 beer.
It’s shameful Anwar Ghazali wasn’t told to go to one of the GOP’s nationwide mental health facilities when he tried to purchase the gun. Isn’t that right, #MoscowMitch. @RodneyDavis https://t.co/18YYzW59TN

Police said the Dorian Harris 17-year-old walked into the Top Stop Shop in Memphis where Ghazali was working on March 29 last year and took a beer from the cooler.
Surveillance video showed Ghazali grabbing his handgun and pointing it at the teenager as he left the store.

Ghazali then ran after the teenager with his gun and fired two or three shots.
The store clerk was captured on surveillance cameras returning to the store soon after and police said he told a witness: ‘I think I shot him’.
The teenager bled out as he fled and his body was found two days later behind someone’s house close to the store.
