A store manager at Skip's Grocery Store located at 2900 Skyline Drive in the Sansom Park area believes he might have caught the image of a ghost on the store's surveillance video camera on Monday (Nov. 13) night.

See that black, cloud-like image at the right of the screen? Take another look. Ahmad Hammad, a store manager at Skip's Grocery Store in Sansom Park, which is northwest of Fort Worth said he believes that was a ghost traveling across the hood of his truck.

Hammad said that at exactly 7:37 p.m. on Monday night he was working in the store alone when the lights above him flickered.

"It was just like a bad light," Hammad said. "But it's my habit to always look to the cameras every five to 10 minutes."

He said when he glanced at the camera he saw the dark images pass over the hood of his truck.

"It's a live view and I saw something pass over the top of my truck and go inside the wall like a black cloud," Hammad said.

Next, he checked all of the store cameras facing the parking lot. He didn't see anyone or any objects outside.

"I went outside and it was really quiet," said Hammad. "We don't know what it is, actually."

This was the first time Hammad has had cameras catch a glimpse of something seemingly paranormal. His brother decided to post the video on YouTube on Tuesday for any doubters of his story.

But about a year ago Hammad dealt with similar issues when motion sensors on the stores' alarm were triggered three times in one night by something unknown.

He said on his drive home to Arlington he got an alert from the alarm system a few minutes after midnight.

"I came back and left, then after one hour I had to come back again," said Hammad. "An hour later the third time it went off again. The police came two times, but the third time I told them it's not needed."

Hammad said he changed the motion sensors, but the problem continued. He decided to disable the motion sensors and that seemingly fixed the problem. But since then, other strange occurrences have happened.

He said one night after the store was closed around midnight, one of the chairs in front of the video poker machine that sits in the corner began swaying from side to side.

"One night I'm here and one of those chairs was moving. I'm doing paperwork and I thought it was airflow or something," Hammad said. "Most of the time you're busy and not thinking about it and this is the last thing you need to see happening."

He also was told by a former employee that strange things were happening around the store at night. "He was telling me that there's sounds," said Hammad. "On Sunday nights I work almost all day, so sometimes I hear knocking but I don't pay attention because I think it's just my mind tricks me or something."

Despite what seems to be paranormal activity happening around the store, Hammad said he has no plans to leave.

"I didn't believe in this stuff before, but I believe they exist," Hammad said. "But I also believe they can't hurt you at all."
