A suspected murderer who allegedly plowed into shoppers at a Walmart, killing a veteran, has left a courtroom stunned with his actions toward a judge.
Khalil Pugh, 18, gave the judge two middle fingers and was then carted out of court by bailiffs after being denied bail for his alleged involvement in the senseless crash.
Pugh’s gesture sparked audible gasps from the horrified audience, and one apparent family member walked up to the man to tell him to “get his act together,” local CBS affiliate WCTV reports.
“That’s what you call having no remorse,” an officer said after the outburst.
Thomasville police are seeking to try him for murder after evidence suggested the crash was intentional, investigators said.
Pugh zoomed a gray Toyota Camry through the parking lot of a Georgia Walmart and smashed it into the front doors just before noon on Wednesday.
The violent crash took the life of Florida veteran Kenneth Kennedy, 66, who served in the Army for 25 years and worked for the U.S. Postal Service for another 17.
Local reports found that at least three others were injured in the crash but a straight number has yet to be confirmed by officials.
Pugh attempted to run away but was caught by shoppers near the scene, authorities say.
Surveillance footage captured the car going well above the speed limit before smashing into the building, the local outlet reports.
A shocking mugshot of the suspect shows him smiling eerily in the wake of the fatal crash.
According to police, the suspect had gotten in trouble previously for attempting to steal cars at a separate location.
Another individual was in the passenger seat and was taken in for questioning.
It’s unclear if the person will be hit with charges.
Pugh is facing 11 charges including malice murder, felony murder, homicide by vehicle, aggravated assault with intent to murder, driving under the influence, and reckless driving.
Anyone who may have witnessed the crash has been asked by police to come forward.
Meanwhile, Kennedy, an active member at a Monticello church, is set to be laid to rest on Monday at the Tallahassee National Cemetery.
Family and friends are remembering him as a loving family man.
“He never met a stranger and was a true friend to all who knew him,” his obituary states.
He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two grandchildren.
Another POS that needs to be hung or face the electric chair. Make this Fing B—–d feel what pain is. Enough of the gutter trash killing and destroying decent society. I doubt anyone will miss him!
Now that is a surprise, usually nowadays the Judges are sitting the murders right back out on the street? Must not be a Soros Judge?
You can take the nigger out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the nigger!
