Two armed citizens stopped a gunman who opened fire in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Washington State over the weekend.

“People reported a driver was driving in the wrong direction in the vicinity,” the Tacoma News Tribune reported. “…The suspect then headed to Walmart. When [police] arrived at the Walmart, they learned that a man had tried to carjack a car and shot a man inside the car twice. He then tried to carjack another car. Two citizens in the parking lot drew weapons; at least one of them shot and killed the armed man…”

Two innocent people were injured in the incident before the gunman was stopped, the Daily Mail reported.
