Brya Bishop, 24, faces three felony charges which include, tampering with evidence, lying to police investigating a violent crime and accessory after the fact to a felony.

Prosecutors say Brya allegedly wiped her phone clean and helped her brother, Ramonyea Bishop, 23, and her father, Larry Teague, flea police.

Brya's mother, Sharmel Teague has also been charged in the case and is currently in jail.

The fatal shooting happened Friday, May 1. Authorities say 43-year-old Calvin Munerlyn was working as a security guard at the Family Dollar store when he allegedly asked Sharmel to wear a mask while inside. That led to an altercation.

Shortly after, Ramonyea and Larry allegedly returned to the store to confront Munerlyn, who was then shot once in the head.

The incident was captured on surveillance video.

Ramonyea and Larry are still on the run and considered armed and extremely dangerous.

On Monday, prosecutors announced murder charges filed against Larry, Sharmel and Ramonyea. Brya Bishop is now in custody at the Genesee County Jail.

"Brya Bishop's attempts to shield family members will not be tolerated and we will likewise hold anyone else involved in offering shelter and assistance to Larry Teague or Ramonyea Bishop accountable under the law," said Prosecutor David Leyton.

A GoFundMe account for Munerlyn's family has raised close to $400,000, with donations coming in from around the world.

If you have information on this crime, or know the whereabouts of Ramonyea or Larry, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL (5245).
