Cops: Bystander Kills Carjacker at Walmart

Tumwater shooting: Multiple people gunned down at Walmart in Washington state | Daily Star

Injured in the suspect's violent spree were the driver of one of the cars he attempted to highjack, and a 16-year-old girl at another location who suffered unspecified injuries, the Seattle Times reported.

Laura Wohl, spokeswoman for the Tumwater Police Department, said an adult man who had been shot was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. "(The suspect) hijacks a auto apparently to get here, then hijacks another vehicle.

"As we were speaking to witnesses at that scene, we get another call of shots fired here at Walmart", Wohl said. The station reports that as people fled the store, the gunman followed and shots were heard outside.

The attacker, who police have not yet named, then went outside where he attempted to carjack a vehicle, say police.

Officers are investigating four scenes connected with the shootings.

Witnesses told KOMO the suspect began shooting inside the store at about 5 p.m. and continued firing shots in the parking lot. "And as he tried to hijack a second auto, a citizen who was in the parking lot took his gun and shot the suspect". After he failed in the attempt, the suspect, whose name has not been released, headed to a Walmart parking lot where he made another attempt to steal yet another vehicle. Police later determined that it was actually a carjacking, Wohl said.

It was not clear if there were casualties, although reports on social media indicate people have been hurt.

Darren Gossler of Elma told the TNT that he was in the store when the shooting started.

Wohl said authorities do not yet know anything about the gunman and could not reveal any identifying details.

Megan Chadwick, told KIRO-TV that her husband witnessed the bystander shoot the suspect.

Adams said he then saw a father with his family take out his concealed weapon and shoot the gunman dead. When she got outside, she said she heard more shots.

"There were three civilians going after him to shoot him and two of them had their guns up and then the third guy shot him through the window of the auto", she said.

Last November in Texas, an armed bystander shot and wounded a man who had just massacred 26 people at a church.

"He is a hero", Adams said.
