CEDAR GLEN, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a California store owner has been fatally shot after a dispute over a LGBTQ Pride flag outside her business.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials say 66-year-old Laura Ann Carleton was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting Friday night.
They say an armed suspect was later located and killed after a confrontation with deputies.
He hasn’t been identified yet.
According to sheriff’s officials, the man made several disparaging remarks about a rainbow flag that stood outside the clothing store.
Carleton is survived by her husband and nine children in a blended family.
