Man fires at vehicle in Oklahoma Walmart parking lot

Occurred February 6, 2014.

Police responded to a shooting at a Walmart store in Mustang, Oklahoma. Justin Smallwood, 29, of Oklahoma City, fired at an occupied vehicle in the parking lot, using a shotgun.  A police chase ensued, and when he was captured, he was wearing a bulletproof vest and, in addition to the shotgun, had two handguns, including one with a high-capacity ammo magazine.

Luckily, no one was injured.

From an article with a pic of the suspect:
"We had a subject that fired a weapon in the Walmart parking lot," Foley said. "He struck a vehicle that had three occupants in it. No one was hurt or injured." 
Foley said a Mustang police officer found the vehicle that matched the description, a silver Dodge Charger, and attempted to stop the vehicle. 
"The subject would not stop and a pursuit started," Foley said. "The pursuit went into Oklahoma City and ended at Interstate 40 and Council Road. He was taken into custody without incident." 
Justin Smallwood, 29, of Oklahoma City was taken into custody and booked into the Mustang city jail. 
"Something significant with this arrest is the firearms and ammunition he had with him," Foley said. 
Foley said Smallwood used a 12 gauge shotgun at Walmart. 
"When he was arrested, he was wearing a bullet proof vest loaded with extra magazines for both the rifle and handguns," he said. "There were two handguns laying on the passenger seat of the vehicle, one being a Glock firearm with an extra high-capacity magazine in it and the other being a .45 caliber 1911 style colt with another high-capacity magazine." 
Foley said he did not know what Smallwood's intent was at Walmart.
The suspect was heavily armed, including with an assault rifle.
