Walmart guard pulls out Taser during confrontation with teens



HOUSTON –

A parking lot confrontation at a Walmart between an off-duty police officer and several teenagers almost got violent, and it was all caught on a cellphone camera.

In the video shot early Friday at a store on Beltway 8 near Beechnut, two teenagers are heard joking around in the parking lot. One used his camera phone to record stray shopping carts and signs.

The teens were confronted by a security guard who doesn’t want to be a part of their footage.

In the video, the off-duty law enforcement officer can be heard saying, “You can’t do video, not at me.”

The teen then responded, “No, I’m doing it of the sign, not at you. I promise.”

The situation quickly escalated when the guard pulled out a Taser and asked the teens for photo identification.

One teen can be heard no the video saying, “Are you serious? You’re about to tase me?”

Investigators said the guard detained the teens and called Houston police for assistance.

The Harris County District Attorney’s office declined to press charges against the teens. Police said they were let go with a warning about criminal trespassing.

A Walmart representative said the incident is being investigated and the cellphone video and their own surveillance video will be reviewed.

The company asked the security company it contracts with not to schedule that guard at any of the Walmart stores until the investigation is completed.

Local 2 reached out to the security company but has not heard back yet.

Cops: Man tried to use $1M bill at NC Walmart

Associated Press

LEXINGTON, N.C. ; &mdasDo you have change for a million-dollar bill?

Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Walmart.

Investigators told the Winston-Salem Journal (http://bit.ly/u7ZrEN ) that 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence that the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested.

The largest bill in circulation is $100. The government stopped making bills of up to $10,000 in 1969.

Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. He is in jail on a $17,500 bond, and it isn’t clear if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to be in court Tuesday.

2 Tenn. officers involved in fatal shooting at Walmart

By Hayes Hickman Knoxville News-Sentinel

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A suspected shoplifter was fatally shot by police when he allegedly pulled a handgun on an officer inside a Walmart in South Knoxville on Tuesday night.

The two Knoxville Police Department officers involved had responded at approximately 6:42 p.m. to an initial report of two theft suspects detained by store security in the loss prevention office of the Walmart, 7420 Chapman Highway, said Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch. "The indication at the time was that they were nonviolent," Rausch said. "As they were attempting to interview one of the suspects, that suspect began to struggle with officers. During the struggle, the suspect pulled a weapon. … At this point I just know it was a handgun."

One of the officers pulled his weapon and shot the man in self-defense, the chief said.

Rausch did not specify how many rounds were fired, nor was it immediately clear whether the suspect fired at the officers.

Dennis Morgan, volunteering for a third year as a Salvation Army bell ringer, was standing at the store’s north entrance, just beyond the security office door, when he heard the shots behind him.

"All I heard was about seven or eight gunshots, and by then I had already evacuated," Morgan said. "I wasn’t sticking around to see exactly what happened."

The second suspect was taken into custody, Rausch said.

Neither suspect has been named by police, pending notification of the deceased man’s next of kin.

The police chief described the shooting victim as a white male who appeared to be in his 20s.

The two KPD officers, who were not identified, were uninjured. Both were taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, though, for blood tests, per departmental policy.

Both will be put on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal and internal investigations, Rausch said.

Business continued inside the supersized store as KPD investigators and crime scene technicians worked behind yellow police tape Tuesday night.

Standing outside, Rausch lamented the terrible turn of events, but he did not question his officer’s judgment.

"Obviously our officer has to respond — if somebody points a gun at an officer, that’s the way we’re going to respond," the chief said.

"When someone loses a life, it’s a sorry thing. It’s sad. The impact it’s going to have on that family is going to be horrible. But the impact it’s going to have on these officers is just as detrimental. The last thing an officer wants to do is take someone’s life."
