Justin Ross Murphy, 20, opened fire inside the Walmart in Kernersville, North Carolina, shooting three times in the Electronics Department.  Motive is unknown.  Luckily, no one was harmed, and Murphy was captured later by police.

From an article:

Justin Ross Murphy was arrested after an incident reported around 11:20 p.m. at the Main Street store. No one was hurt.
Employees flagged down a Kernersville police officer in the parking lot and reported that a man was firing a large-caliber handgun in the electronics department.
The store was evacuated, but police determined that the suspect left the store before the lockdown.
After getting a suspect description, police later arrested Murphy without incident at 4890 Old Hollow Road. 
He was charged with shooting into an occupied property, carrying a concealed weapon, going armed to the terror of the public and malicious injury to property.

Walmart.  Save money.  Die faster.

UPDATE (1/5/13):  Murphy has pleaded guilty to the charge.  Using a .50-caliber Desert Eagle handgun, he fired it and hit two flat-screen TVs and a wall.

UPDATE (3/20/13):  Watch at this link to see video of Murphy strolling into the electronics section, firing three shots while customer walked by, and calmly walking away. Currently, in North Carolina, it is only a misdemeanor to fire a gun inside a building (but a felony to fire at a building from the outside)!  A bill has been introduced to correct this, because of this case.
