Convicted For Shooting a Man, Prisoned For 7 Years, Becomes A Security Guard?

Check this:

Later, [Keith Scott] moved to Texas where he shot and wounded a man in San Antonio in 2002, for which he was convicted and sentenced, in 2005, to seven years in prison. He was released in 2011.

When Mr. Scott was not at his home, he was often at Gastonia’s Eastridge Mall, where he worked as a security guard for nearly a year and was regarded as a warm figure.

Granted, I am no expert at the security guard business but how does a person get convicted of a second-degree felony for shooting at someone 10 times, then get hired as a security guard?

I get that it is hard to find people to work as a security guard at the wages guards get paid, but is a felony really not a disqualification for being a security guard? Anyone with any insights about security guard hiring practices?
