Gunman wounds 2, is fatally shot by bystander at Walmart store

The gunman who was killed in the parking lot of a Tumwater Walmart by an armed citizen on Sunday had fired shots inside the store and stolen ammunition before being confronted by the armed citizen who had followed him outside, police said on Monday.

The 44-year-old man, identified as Tim O. Day, was ultimately shot and killed outside the store by a 47-year-old Oakville man.

One of the wounded victims was flown by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, but their condition is not known. While officers were en route, they learned that a man had carjacked a vehicle belonging to the teenage girl at a nearby intersection.

While officers were attempting to locate that vehicle, police received reports of additional shots fired at the Walmart, where the suspect reportedly abandoned the first stolen auto and tried to carjack another vehicle.

A short time later, at about 5:30 p.m., Thurston County Dispatch began getting calls about shots fired "in or around the Tumwater Walmart and parking lot", according to police. Wohl said they later confirmed that the man doing the shooting was the same person involved in the carjacking. He then tried to carjack another vehicle.

As Day tried to take a second vehicle a "bystander here in the parking lot shot the suspect", Wohl said.

Tumwater Police said the suspect tried to carjack two cars in the Walmart parking lot at 5900 Littlerock Rd SW. He tweeted: "I was in the dairy section". The investigation is continuing, she said.
