Authorities have identified the security guard who was shot and killed Sunday night at a Cumming grocery store as a 37-year-old Winder man.

Karleen Chalker, spokeswoman for the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, said David Casto was employed by Executive Security Services of Atlanta, which provided security at the Ingles on Canton Road.
