|Scene of shooting at Bedford County Walmart|
A man went into a Walmart in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, and stole a "CO2 pellet gun." An employee saw him, and followed him. The man, Christopher McGillick, threatened her, then, when she followed him into the parking lot, opened fire on her and another employee with the gun, hitting them several times.
McGillick was known to the Walmart, since he frequented the store and his brother had worked there. He was tracked down and arrested. Two pellet guns were found in his possession.
From an article and news video:
According to court documents, an employee of the Walmart said she noticed McGillick attempting to steal a CO2 pellet gun a little after midnight. When she started to follow him around the store,
police said, he confronted her and threatened to punch her in the face. Police said McGillick then left the store as the same employee followed him out to make sure he didn't take anything with him, but that's when he got into his car, pulled out a pellet gun and started shooting.
Police say he hit two employees: The one who followed him out was hit four times, and another, standing in the doorway, was hit at least once.
Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
McGillick was able to get away but not before one of the employees took down his license plate. State police were able to catch up with him a short time later at a motel in Breezewood, where they
found two pellet guns in his car, they said.
