    RIP - Brother.

    Sounds like a crazy place to work at. Terrible thing to happen. Remember Officer safety out there everyone.

      Whitehaven being described as a "safe, beautiful, comfortable" place makes me think that the commenter lives in Mississippi or Memphis proper...

      Some of the things the guard companies down there expect of you are amazing, for the amount you're being paid. See also: Here's a patch, buy all your gear and uniforms.

          From the Commercial Appeal; Memphis TN; Feb 28, 2010:

          "Police today identified a security guard at Southland Mall... who was shot and killed Saturday...

          Marques Rainey, 28, was transported in critical condition to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, where he was later pronounced dead..."

          No further details so far; if anyone has any links with more detailed information, please post them here. There are a lot of questions unanswered as of yet...

          Rest in Peace, Brother. My sincere condolences to SO Rainey's family, friends, and coworkers.

          And thank you all (contributors) for refraining from attempting to after-action this incident, until we have some facts to discuss.

              "UPDATE: Police charge suspect in shooting death of security guard

              MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Memphis man charged with murdering a Southland Mall security guard was on bond on a domestic violence charge at the time of the shooting.

              Tuesday, police charged Terrell Loverson, 20, with First Degree Murder in the shooting death of Marques Rainey. Loverson was also charged with assault and resisting official detention, after he allegedly struck an officer during his arrest.

              Witnesses said the shooting happened Saturday afternoon while a group of men were in a fight near the mall's north entrance. During the fight, Rainey detained Loverson.

              According to the affidavit of complaint, "Marques Rainey released the defendant and as he was walking away the defendant shot Rainey."

              Rainey, 28, was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

              Loverson has a recent history of trouble with the law. Last month, he was arrested and charged with domestic assault, after investigators said he punched his girlfriend in the face with a closed hand, pulled her hair out, and threw her to the ground. He was arrested, but later released after posting $1,000 bond.

              In April 2009, Loverson was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance that police identified as Delaudid. The charge was later dropped without prosecution... "
