Three patrons were just outside a Walmart store in Lyons Township, Michigan, when 17-year old Jonathan Hakkon Dahl approached them and pulled out a handgun. He threatened to shoot them unless they gave him money, saying it was for a drug debt. One of the victims then went into the store under the pretense of getting Dahl money, but called 911 instead. Dahl was subsequently arrested.
The gun turned out to be a CO2 pistol.
Two of the victims were 19, another was 18.
From an article:
Authorities report that Dahl was waving a “handgun” — what was later described by authorities as a Umarex CO-2 pistol — at the victims, demanding money.
“(He) told the victims he needed money to pay someone back for drugs,” said Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Chris Wundrach in a Friday press release. “He also told the victims that if he didn’t get the money, that some people were going to shoot up his neighborhood with AK-47 (rifles).”
One of the victims, a woman, convinced Dahl that the trio would go into the store, get money out of the ATM inside and bring it to him, deputies reported.
The woman called 911 once she was inside the Wal-Mart, while Dahl remained outside in front of the big box store.
When deputies arrived, Dahl led them on short chase, but he was caught and taken into custody shortly after.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
