  • Police identify gunman killed by bystander in Walmart lot

A shooting outside a Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, Washington Sunday evening was the end result of a crime spree from the now deceased gunman, police said. "And as he tried to hijack a second auto, a citizen who was in the parking lot took his gun and shot the suspect".

Upon arriving, officers found a 16-year-old girl suffering from minor injuries.

Tumwater police say officers were initially responding to a report of a vehicle driving in the wrong direction but, while en route, were sent to a nearby scene of a reported carjacking with shots fired.

Police say the suspect then left the store and tried a second carjacking, in the parking lot, shooting an adult male occupant of the vehicle in the process.

Tim Day is the only suspect, Tumwater Police said Monday. The victim was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries.

An armed man is dead and two others are injured after a shooting at the Walmart in Tumwater about 5 p.m. The suspect was then shot by an armed civilian who witnessed the second carjacking attempt.

Tumwater Fire Department and Thurston County Medic 5 also provided assistance.

Wohl said at least two armed civilians followed the suspect out of the store and confronted him.




A woman told The Olympian newspaper she heard "pop, pop, pop" coming from across the store. According to some witnesses, the gunman was only "near" the Walmart.

Moments later she heard, "pop, pop, pop", and everyone froze, she said. Bailey said she told the woman to get into her vehicle and they escaped to a nearby auto wash.

While police responded to the possible DUI scene, dispatchers received multiple 911 calls about a carjacking and shots being fired at the Walmart less than a mile away. No customers or employees were hit. "He took action. I really think more people could have been shot. he saved us all".

He added: "I was in the dairy section".

Witness Darren Gossler said he saw a man with what appeared to be a handgun in the supermarket.

She said she heard more pops from outside. But others are saying that he was definitely inside the store and fired some shots at a display case.

He fled after the attempt, according to police, and was later seen driving erratically before crashing into another vehicle in nearby Tumwater.

She said about that time the neighboring Costco store started evacuating its customers.
