Cops: Bystander Kills Carjacker at Walmart

A gunman injured a teen and shot a man in a pair of carjacking attempts Sunday, before being killed by a bystander outside a Washington state Walmart store. The other, a 16-year-old girl, suffered an injury believed to be minor.

The man who was wounded by gunfire was airlifted to a hospital, where he remains in critical condition in the ICU.

While officers were attempting to locate that vehicle, police received reports of additional shots fired at the Walmart, where the suspect reportedly abandoned the first stolen auto and tried to carjack another vehicle.

According to the Tumwater Police Department, the suspect from the earlier carjacking entered the Walmart store around 5:30 p.m. and fired shots at a display case inside.

Wohl said authorities do not yet know anything about the gunman and could not reveal any identifying details. When the driver of that vehicle backed away, one of the armed citizens shot the suspect, who died at the scene, according to the release. He then tried to carjack another auto.

The suspect then tried to carjack another vehicle in the parking lot when they were approached by two armed civilians.

After crashing his auto, Day "attempted to carjack at least two other vehicles, fired shots at the vehicles, and demanded owners abandon their cars", Tumwater police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said in a news release. "Get out, get out!'" she said.

Darren Gossler of Elma was in the store when the shooting started.

He added: "I was in the dairy section". Heard about 5 or 6 pops. One witness on the scene expressed great relief, saying that a lot more people might have been shot if the armed citizen (s) hadn't intervened. "Ducked under some cars and ran to Costco".
