A man was shot and killed in his car in the parking lot of a Walmart gas station and parking lot in Dallas, Texas. An off-duty police officer, working security, responded and chased a suspect across the street, firing at him and hitting him. The suspect then died.
From an article:
According to police and witnesses, the officer was working a security job at a Walmart store when there was a commotion at the gas station in the parking lot just before 1 a.m. between people in two vehicles.
One shot was fired, police say, and one of the vehicles crashed into parked cars. A man was discovered dead inside.
The suspects then took off and the officer chased them into the parking lot of a Denny's restaurant across the street.
The officer says he spotted a gun and told the suspect to put it down, but he didn't listen. The officer fired his weapon and shot the suspect, who took off in his car again -- eventually crashing into parked cars. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the officer felt his safety was at risk.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
