Last November in Texas, an armed bystander shot and wounded a man who had just massacred 26 people at a church.

A gunman wounded two people before being fatally shot by a bystander at a Walmart store in Washington state Sunday evening.

The incident at the Walmart in Tumwater happened about 5 p.m...

There are no other suspects in the reported shootings or carjackings at this time, police say.

While police responded to the possible DUI scene, dispatchers received multiple 911 calls about a carjacking and shots being fired at the Walmart less than a mile away.

The driver who was carjacked suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He then tried to carjack another vehicle.

They believe the man shot dead in the Walmart parking lot is the same suspect in all three incidents. He shot and seriously injured a 48-year-old man while trying to carjack his vehicle.

A woman who was in the Walmart with her kids told KIRO-TV she fled the store with them and hid in the parking lot behind a vehicle.

"Then somebody yelled 'run, run!' and everyone took off", Ms Bailey said.

"He is a hero", Adams said. He said he heard about 15 shots.

"There were three civilians going after him to shoot him and two of them had their guns up and then the third guy shot him through the window of the vehicle", she said. However, thanks to an armed civilian's quick thinking, the suspect was shot before anyone else could be injured or killed.
