An armed civilian took down a shooter after at least two people were shot Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart, police said.
KIRO 7 reporter Michael Spears is live with how it all unfolded and what we're hearing from the family of the man who is struggling to survive. Watch Michael's reports on air until 7 a.m.
Tumwater police said the civilian, described by officers as a good Samaritan, shot and killed the suspect at the scene.

The shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, about 65 miles south of Seattle. “I heard two bangs. It sounded like gunshots to me,” witness Robert Berwick said. "I looked down the aisle and saw a person running.” That’s when Berwick ran, too. There was chaos in the parking lot, and he said the shooting suspect tried to carjack another man. That’s when the suspect was shot. “I thanked him for saving my life,” Berwick said of the attempted carjacking victim who shot the suspect. “He didn’t look like he had any regrets. I hope he doesn’t have any.” Another witness to the shooting, Megan Chadwick, said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter. "He said he watched him (the shooter) take his last breath," Chadwick said. "There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up -- and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car." Chadwick said her husband was armed as well.
She was inside the Walmart during the shooting with her multiple children. "I looked over and saw hundreds of people running out. ... Just a flood of people and everyone was screaming and frantic. ... When we got about to the door, I heard someone say, 'Gun. Shooter.' And I knew something was serious," Chadwick said.

The UK is such a free country that you can be jailed for having the wrong opinion, can’t defend yourself and can be assaulted at any time without any consequences. I’m not part of the alt-right, but I strongly support free speech and this is fucked up. Unfortunately, shit like this is happening in the US too

I know some people find it hard to believe that an inanimate object CAN NOT do anything by itself. It’s very similar to a hammer, which by the way kills more people than rifles per year in the USA. 🇺🇸 #USA #2ndamendment #freedom #gunrightsmatter #nra
Deerfield IL city council has passed a law banning “ assault rifles “ , imposing $1,000 a day penalties for not turning your gun in. They also gave the power to the sheriff to come get that gun if they want to. Your second amendment gone......
“ Cyber bullying “ is the cause of a Lot of teen suicides each year.
Deerfield should ban social media and the evil cell phones that perpetuate this crime. Maybe tell the sheriff to round those up too........Your first amendment gone
