Mom Posts Bizarre Live Video Of 'Interesting' Fatal Shooting Outside Walmart
A woman who stumbled across the aftermath of a fatal shooting in Kansas decided she had to film the scene for Facebook.
Yes, Wendy Russell Macrorie's first reaction was to take out her cell phone and tell the world what just happened in a bizarre video.
One person was killed and two others injured in an alleged car-jacking attempt outside a Walmart in Shawnee on Sunday.
A woman was putting her child in her car when she was approached by two men and hit over the head, reports KMBC.
Two good Samaritans got out of their cars to help. One was shot by an assailant in the chaos while the other passerby killed one of the attackers.
Wendy said she was in Walmart buying an inner tube for her son's bike tire when she left and was met with the bloody scene.
In the strange video, she says,
So this is interesting. I am at Walmart, which I hate going to, and this is happening in front of my car. Apparently right in front of my car two men have been shot. I was inside buying some light bulbs and stuff - an inner tube for my son for his bike and everybody was telling everybody not to go outside. So you be careful when you're going to Walmart. This is really scary and insane and grotesque and I am freaked out. Anyway, I hope everyone is okay. Looks like somebody tried to steal somebody's car is the problem. Gross, gross. Don't come to Walmart.
Both the victim and the passerby shot by an attacker were taken to the hospital in critical condition, but the victim is reported to be recovering well.
The assailant who was not shot was taken down by a police dog and arrested.
Maj. Dan Tennis, of the Shawnee Police Department, said,
You know our hearts and prayers go out to both of them for a speedy recovery. I know we have many people out right now, many teams of officers and detectives.
He added the good Samaritans will be interviewed when they're able to talk.
