Shootout at Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market on Cantrell Parking Lot reported

A witness sent this photo and provided the following narrative for today’s reported shootout on the parking lot of the Walmart Neighbohood Market at 2510 Cantrell Road:
“Around 4pm as I was sitting in my car after shopping at Walmart, I heard about 5 POW POW shots, a pause, then about 5 more.  I watched lots of people duck down between cars.  I couldn’t tell where the sounds came from.  [There was] a woman with 2 little girls right in front of my car. After a few seconds I got out,  asked her if we had heard gun shots.  She said “yes” and that she saw the shooting.  It was about 50 feet away from us.  We were about 100 feet from the front door [of Wal-Mart].  She saw someone in a blue car fire shots into a Caddy and someone in that car fired back.  The blue car sped away.  The man in the Caddy left his car running and he took off running around the Dollar Tree store.  Once it seemed clear the Walmart employees came running out.  A former student of mine was also there, she saw the shooting and told the same story as the lady with the two little girls. I took a few photos of the shot up car but a Wal-Mart employee told us to stop taking photos because of publicity issues.”
As far as I could tell, nobody was actually hit by any bullets. But this vehicle appears to have been shot at least once. There was an unconfirmed report that one of these men was arrested. More Stuff

  1. A Wal-Mart employee has no authority to tell you to stop taking pictures. Sam’s Wally World just doesn’t want the bad publicity of their parking lot being used as the equivalent of the OK Corral.

  2. Shaka Zulu says:

    Of course they don’t want the bad publicity….. they just made a public announcement yesterday that they will continue to sell semi-automatic weapons because their consumers have requested it. It would be ironic if the weapons had been purchased at a Wal-Mart.

  3. Nonvictim says:

    Been nice if some of their customers would have been packing those weapons. Come in sheep wake up.

  4. Wal-Mart has a ridiculous photo policy regarding press

    Wal-Mart has tried to restrict photography of any event on it’s property nation wide, in some cases illegally seizing cameras or trying to demand the surrender of memory cards etc. They have no legal standing for the seizures but they continue to try to block coverage of incidents on it’s property. – their ridiculous policy on news coverage

    Wal-Mart’s photo policy

    “Wal-Mart’s policy that all photos taken on its property must be approved in advance includes breaking news coverage, company spokeswoman Christi Gallagher said.

    The company requires the media – or anyone else – to get approval before taking pictures in Wal-Mart stores or on Wal-Mart property, she said.

    Asked if journalists photographing unexpected news, such as a fire, need the same permission, Gallagher said they do.

    After hours, a journalist should call the company’s 24-hour corporate hotline before taking pictures, she said.”

  5. Anne Orsi says:

    That policy is utterly absurd, not to mention completely unenforceable in a world where every cell phone has a camera, and every customer has a cell phone. When Wal-Mart invites the public into its stores, it invites their eyes, too. I cannot imagine that Wal-Mart would ever get a court to enforce the policy in the parking lot or among the members of the press. I doubt one would even enforce the policy inside the store.
