Tumwater, Washington – Armed Carjacker on Shooting Spree Taken Down by Armed Civilian

 In 2nd Amendment

Tumwater, Washington – A armed civilian fatally shot an armed carjacker who was on a shooting spree in Tumwater, Washington on Sunday…before police were able to do it. According to multiple reports, more than one armed civilian had their guns out ready to take out the perpetrator. Only two people were injured, but with the crazed actions of the suspect, many more could have been harmed.

Police were called to a report of an erratic driver on Sunday at around 5:30 p.m.. As they were investigating the report of an erratic driver, they learned about a carjacking at a nearby intersection near Tumwater High School. A 16 year old  female was injured in that incident. Her injuries are non-life-threatening and she was treated by paramedics.

Multiple reports began coming in about a carjacking and shots fired at a nearby Walmart, about a mile away.

The suspect fled to the Walmart, ran into the store, fired multiple rounds at a display case, then attempted to carjack two more cars in the parking lot. As people fled the store in a panic, the suspect tried to carjack a car in the parking lot. He shot the car owner, who refused to give up the vehicle, then tried to carjack another vehicle. The victim was airlifted to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

The second car he tried to steal was his undoing: at least two armed civilians confronted him and one fatally shot him, stopping the incident. One of the other armed civilians grabbed a medical kit to render aid to the shooting victim of the carjacking, according to King5. At least three civilians pulled their guns on the suspect, one fired, according to ABC6.

The armed civilian is being hailed as a hero for stopping the incident before more people were injured. All three were prepared, and stood their ground against an armed assailant. Four crime scenes, all related.
