From Albuquerque, New Mexico;

When officers spotted the suspects speeding away from the store in a white van, they followed them.

“This is two area commands, we have a massive scene here,” said APD Officer Simon Drobik.

The pursuit ended in a Smith’s grocery store parking lot, where shots were fired.

“We came in here quick stop just to pick up some cherries because they were on sale we were supposed to do a quick in and out,” said Leandrew Deswood, who was inside Smith’s during the shooting.

Police say an officer shot at the suspects.

They say one of the suspects was taken to a hospital where he later died and the second is in custody.

From Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania;

“The (intruder) came from across the street and went into the victim’s garage. While in the garage, the (intruder) retrieved a gas can and walked into the victim’s house. The (intruder) began pouring gasoline all over the floor,” according to a news release.

The home owner pushed the intruder out of the home, while at the same time, his daughter retrieved a handgun and gave it to her father then called 911, police said.

The intruder repeatedly “kept coming at” the homeowner, knocking him the ground, police said.

“The (homeowner) got to his knees and fired one shot at the (intruder), striking him in the left arm and abdomen,” police said.

The intruder stayed on the ground until paramedics and police arrived at the scene, and was taken to a local hospital for treatment for his wounds.

    Story #2 is one of those ‘what the h—?’ stories that leave you shaking your head.

    “The intruder repeatedly “kept coming at” the homeowner, knocking him the ground, police said.”

    Given the circumstances, I believe he would have ‘come at me’ exactly once.

      “According to a police release, two armed civilians initially approached the suspect.”

      Good strategy.

      I’m telling you never go to Walmart unarmed. It is the most dangerous place in most small cities. The sheer volume of crime that take place there from the shoplifting, carjackings, drug sales in the bathroom, hit and run crashes, assaults, police chases etc. make the cost savings over other stores negligible.

      If you go after 9PM half the customers in the store are either high or shoplifting (or both).

      Gee, that doesn’t occur at the Walmart I go to. I must be living in a more civilized location… and the county mounties are a short phone call away, and they have ZERO sense of humor… and there is frequently an off-duty pohlease person near the front exits, too.

      Or maybe I just live on another planet?

    Just like Kennedy’s, I am calling BS. How could a bullet strike both the arm and abdomen? It’s a miracle bullet, a conspiracy! We need an investigation! /s

    Pour product (gasoline) on the floor an act of arson, spill product (gasoline) on the floor an accident. When the case goes to court, one side will claim a spill and the other a pour.
