Police in Washington state are responding to reports of a shooting at a Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater.

Emergency dispatchers in Thurston County told Q13 Fox that it's likely there are injuries, but none were immediately confirmed.

Tumwater Police told the news station the suspect is dead and there is no danger to the public.

Officials said 911 reports indicated shots were fired both inside and outside of the store, according to The Olympian.

An armed citizen reportedly shot the suspect outside Walmart, where he remains and is speaking with investigators.

Kailani Bailey, a witness who was inside the Supercenter at the time of the alleged shooting, told the newspaper a tall man was shoving people out of the way and telling them to "move."

She said that moments later she heard multiple popping sounds coming from inside the store. "Then somebody yelled, 'Run, run!' and everyone took off."

"When I got outside, I heard more pop, pop, pop," she said.

Tumwater is about an hour's drive southwest of Seattle.

One of the armed citizens credited with taking out a carjacking suspect who went on a rampage in a Washington state Walmart parking lot Sunday reportedly is a pastor in the area.

The 47-year-old Oakville man, who has not been identified, shot and killed the suspect outside the Supercenter in Tumwater, The Olympian reported Monday.


The man was described by a police spokesperson has a local pastor with a concealed carry permit.

The unidentified man shot and killed the suspect, 44-year-old Tim Day, after he embarked on a violent spree that left three people injured — including a 48-year-old man who was shot twice when he refused to give up his car, according to Q13 Fox

The man who was wounded by gunfire was airlifted to a hospital, where he remains in critical condition in the ICU.

His son, Kyle Fievez, told the Olympia-area newspaper that his father was shot in the neck and torso, and that bullet fragments were lodged near his spine.

A GoFundMe account set up for the man said he "lost his spleen and part of his pancreas," and "also ruptured his stomach... he is paralyzed from the neck down."

The pastor who shot Day reportedly has emergency medical training and helped the wounded man before he was taken to the hospital.

The Walmart Supercenter was closed on Monday but was scheduled to reopen Tuesday morning.
