'Shooter! Get out!': Tumwater spree leaves suspected gunman dead and 2 wounded

A 16-year-old girl was injured in the carjacking attempt.

Police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said the violence began at around 17:00 local time on Sunday when police received reports of a possibly drunk driver going the wrong way down the road.

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

"Then the suspect tried to hijack a second auto". Witnesses say the bystander then grabbed a medical kit and rendered aid to the victim who was shot. The station reports that as people fled the store, the gunman followed and shots were heard outside. The gunman, not far away, then shot a driver of a vehicle he was attempting to steal.

Police officers on Sunday investigate the scene of a deadly shooting at a Walmart store in Tumwater, Washington. "And as he tried to hijack a second vehicle, a citizen who was in the parking lot took his gun and shot the suspect".

Police did not identify any of those involved in the incident or the type of weapons used, except to say they were handguns.

There he attempted to carjack another vehicle, shooting an occupant in it at least twice.

The action inside the store set off fears of a possible mass shooting.

She said she heard more pops from outside.

Kailani Bailey told the Tacoma News Tribune she was shopping inside the grocery section of the Walmart when a tall man in a T-shirt and jeans ran in and shoved people out of the way, ordering them to "move, move".

"We never want to see citizens put themselves in harm's way", she said of the citizen who shot the suspect, but, "in this case we don't know if he stopped the suspect from killing or hurting other people, and that can only be a good thing".

According to a police release, two armed civilians initially approached the suspect.

Adams said he ran out of the store and into the parking lot toward his auto. "This (suspect) could have taken out more people, wounded or killed", said witness Brian Adams.

"He is a hero", Adams said.

He said once he heard the gunshots he started running with other customers.
