Police ID man fatally shot by citizen at Wash. Walmart

Armed bystander shoots kills suspected carjacker in Washington stateMore

One of the armed citizens credited with taking out a carjacking suspect who went on a rampage in a Washington state Walmart parking lot Sunday reportedly is a pastor in the area.

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

A 16-year-old boy - initially identified as a girl by police on Sunday - suffered minor injuries in near Tumwater High School, though police did not say if he had been shot or injured in the crash with the suspect's vehicle.

Tumwater Police said the suspect tried to carjack two cars in the Walmart parking lot at 5900 Littlerock Rd SW.

"The suspect tried to carjack a vehicle, and when the individual who owned the auto did not cooperate, he ended up shooting that vehicle driver", said Laura Wohl with the Tumwater Police Department. Police say one of the civilians fatally shot the suspect.

That driver was airlifted to a local hospital, police say, and is in now critical condition.

While police said the shooting happened outside the Walmart, witnesses reported they could hear the shots from inside the store, which caused chaos and panic inside the retail outlet. The suspect was then shot by an armed civilian who witnessed the second carjacking attempt.

Tumwater is in Thurston County and near Olympia.

Police have not released the identities of the victims or the gunman.

KOMO-TV reports that a witness says people were in line when they heard gunfire in the store.

"He's a hero", Adams repeatedly called the man. "[.] If this customer hadn't done what he did, I mean - yeah, he's a hero. Megan Chadwick, a bystander who huddled with her four children during the shooting, praised the actions of the men who confronted the suspect.

It is not clear whether the shooter ever entered the store, despite customers' reports that he had, Wohl said. The suspect then headed to Walmart, Wohl said. Another of those "good guy with a gun" stories which I'm constantly told don't really happen.

He added: "I was in the dairy section".

Adams said he then saw a father with his family take out his concealed weapon and shoot the gunman dead.

She said she heard more pops from outside.

At the Walmart, around 65 miles south of Seattle, police found the first victim's stolen auto. But others are saying that he was definitely inside the store and fired some shots at a display case.
