Two men were witnessed shoplifting in a Colerain Township, Ohio, Walmart store. When loss-prevention staff confronted them, a fight ensued, and one of them pulled out a handgun and shot it into the floor.
Luckily, no one was injured. One of the suspects escaped.
From an article:
Mohammad Stewart, 19, is charged with complicity to aggravated robbery and complicity to burglary, police said, and warrants have also been signed for G Quan Palmer, 18, on charges of aggravated robbery and burglary.
The charges stem from an incident at the store, 8451 Colerain Ave., on Monday. Around 2:30 p.m., “Mohammad Stewart and G Quan Palmer were observed committing a theft offense,” a news release said.
Loss-prevention officers tried to stop both suspects, and “Palmer produced a handgun. At some point during the struggle, Palmer discharged the weapon into the ground,” the release said. No one was injured.
Colerain Police Department’s Criminal Investigative Unit worked with loss-prevention officers and others to identify Palmer and Stewart as the suspects. Colerain detectives arrested Stewart on Tuesday without incident. “Stewart confessed to the aggravated robbery and also to a burglary that occurred earlier in the month,” a news release said.Walmart.
