Interesting story developing in Sherwood, Arkansas, where a concealed carrier this week reportedly discharged a firearm inside a Walmart to break up a fight.
Local media reports that a group of 4 to 5 young adults were fighting with one another when a bystander, who has a valid concealed carry permit, pulled out her handgun and fired it up into the air.
Again, this was inside the store.
Police came to the scene and arrested the alleged combatants. Sherwood Police Officer Richard McNeil spoke to THV11.com about the charges they’ll likely face.
“Disorderly conduct for one. I’m not sure what other charges we are looking at right now.”
However, the woman who fired the shot has not been charged at this time.
The Walmart location has reopened since the incident. It’s not clear if the round penetrated the ceiling or if it damaged the store in any significant way.
Stay tuned for updates.
