Mystery solved. The person who ordered “all black people” to leave a New Jersey Walmart this week was a 16 year-old kid.
Police nabbed him with the help of some tipsters after someone bragged about it on Facebook and Myspace.
Rafael Muñiz, the Washington Township police chief, said that while the cameras did not record anyone speaking on the public-address system, images showed three people — the suspect, a young man and a woman — standing near the phone just before the announcement, and rushing from the store just after it.
With the help of anonymous tipsters, he added, investigators were led to the suspect, who was arrested Friday.
