Indiana man robs Walmart shoppers at gunpoint

Occurred February 6, 2014.

Two men needed a ride at a Walmart Supercenter in Pekin, Indiana, and approached Seanquarius "Mud" Ewing for a ride.  He accepted, walked them to his car, and then pulled out a gun, robbing the two men of their money.  He let the victims go without harming them, then walked into the Walmart again.

When he came out, the police, who had been alerted by the victims, arrested Ewing.

From an article:
The two men Ewing robbed Feb. 6 in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter in East Peoria knew him by his nickname, “Mud.” They trusted him enough to accept his offer of a ride home after they left the store.
The three walked to Ewing’s sports utility vehicle, where the victims accepted his invitation to sit in the back while he climbed into the front passenger seat, according to a prosecutor’s court affidavit. The men then chatted for a minute before Ewing opened the glove compartment.
He pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the men’s faces and said, “Give me everything,” the affidavit stated. One man handed over about $250 and the other gave him a $20 bill, the affidavit stated.
Ewing checked their pockets for anything they were holding back, put the handgun back in the glove box, got out and opened the vehicle’s rear door to let the men leave unharmed, but with a warning that he would “shoot up their house” if they reported the crime to police.
That didn’t frighten the victims enough to stop them from walking to a nearby gas station, where they summoned the law, the affidavit stated.
Officers arrived quickly to find Ewing’s SUV still parked in the lot.
Ewing, they learned, had gone back into the store.
More officers arrived to establish a perimeter around the store and waited for Ewing to emerge. They closed in quickly when he left and re-entered his vehicle, again on the passenger side, the affidavit stated.
The officers recovered the handgun in the glove box and found $262 in cash on the seat next to Ewing. When questioned, he acknowledged the weapon was his and that he had used it to rob the two men, the affidavit stated.
