Armed Dude Attempts Citizen’s Arrest But Ends Up Shooting At Fleeing Vehicle In Packed Parking Lot


Here are the details:

Two suspects, a male and female, were in the process of shoplifting when they were confronted by another man in the parking lot who told the suspects they could not leave, according to police.

The citizen attempted to block the suspects in by standing behind the vehicle around 7:30 p.m. near JCPenny. “The citizen was open-carrying a sidearm and told the suspects if they tried to run him over he would shoot them,” said Sgt. Matthew Chaney.

Chaney stated the suspects attempted to back into the citizen who pulled his sidearm and fired several shots into the tires of the vehicle.  The vehicle still fled the scene.

The dude who fired the shots was questioned at the scene and released.
