Civilian shoots, kills gunman at Tumwater Walmart; 2 others hurt

Armed bystander shoots kills suspected carjacker in Washington stateMore

Two people have been wounded and one killed in a shootout outside a Walmart in Washington state, after an armed gunman attempted -but failed- to hijack a vehicle, whose driver also happened to be armed. Police say her injuries are non-life-threatening.

Minutes later they received reports of gunshots near the local high school, where they found an injured 16-year-old girl who had been carjacked.

They believe the man shot dead in the Walmart parking lot is the same suspect in all three incidents.

The incident happened about 5 p.m.in Tumwater.

Police said the suspect shot a display case inside the Walmart before exiting and attempting the carjacking. That's when a bystander stepped in and shot the suspect, who died at the scene.

Police say the suspect then left the store and tried a second carjacking, in the parking lot, shooting an adult male occupant of the vehicle in the process.

Police say the suspect then tried yet another carjacking in the parking lot, but was approached by two armed civilians.

A Walmart shopper has shot dead a gunman who shot a driver in the auto park in a crime spree.

1 killed, 2 injured after armed carjacker meets armed driver at Walmart parking lot

Police officers on Sunday investigate the scene of a deadly shooting at a Walmart store in Tumwater, Washington.

Witnesses described shots being fired inside the Walmart, as well, though Wohl did not confirm that.

It is not clear if the shooter ever entered the store, despite customers' reports that he had been, Wohl said. They had yet to piece together any hint of a motive.

"There were all kinds of people running out", Robert Berwick, who was in the back of the store, told the Seattle Times.

A woman who was in the Walmart with her kids told KIRO-TV she fled the store with them and hid in the parking lot behind a vehicle.

"Then somebody yelled, 'Run, run!' and everyone took off".

"He is a hero", shopper Brian Adams told King 5 News about the unnamed civilian. The only facts which seem to not be in dispute are that police were alerted to possible criminal activity in the area when a man with a gun was seen near the Walmart.

Another woman who was shopping with her children told the network that they all fled the shop and hid behind a parked vehicle.
