Good guy with a gun again. And apparently there were a few ‘good guys with guns’ at the ready.
An armed civilian took down a shooter after at least two people were shot Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart, police said.
Tumwater police said the civilian, described by officers as a good Samaritan, shot and killed the suspect at the scene.
The shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. PDT at the Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, about 65 miles south of Seattle.
“I heard two bangs. It sounded like gunshots to me,” witness Robert Berwick said. “I looked down the aisle and saw a person running.”
That’s when Berwick ran, too. There was chaos in the parking lot, and he said the shooting suspect tried to carjack another man. That’s when the suspect was shot.
“I thanked him for saving my life,” Berwick said of the attempted carjacking victim who shot the suspect. “He didn’t look like he had any regrets. I hope he doesn’t have any.”
Another witness to the shooting, Megan Chadwick, said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter.
