Gunman shoots two at Walmart store before killed by armed bystander

There are no other suspects in the reported shootings or carjackings at this time, police say. One man discharged his weapon, killing the gunman.

Then at around 17:30, the suspect entered a Walmart Supercenter, where he fired shots at a display case and then went back outside where he continued shooting.

Police responded late Sunday afternoon to a auto driving on the wrong side of the road near Tumwater High School, reported CBS. It also appeared that her auto had been stolen.

While officers were on the scene, they received a call about a carjacking and shots being fired.

Two people were wounded and a suspected gunman is dead in a chaotic shooting inside and outside a Walmart store in Tumwater Sunday evening. "There were three civilians going after him to shoot him and two of them had their guns up and then the third guy shot him through the window of the auto". The driver in the first attempted carjacking was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, about 60 miles north of Tumwater. One victim was shot twice and flown to a hospital in critical condition. He then tried to carjack another auto.

The suspect, whose identity was withheld, allegedly shot the driver after he refused to cooperate. He has not been identified.

KOMO News reported the civilian grabbed his own gun and shot and killed the suspect.

The gunman was identified Monday as Tim O. Day 44 of McCleary Grays Harbor County according to the Thurston County Coroner’s Office

Police say nobody inside the store was injured by the gunfire, which caused scores of panicked customers to flee through emergency exits. "He said he watched [the shooter] take his last breath", she said. He had hoped the noise was actually helium balloons popping. Then she looked at an older gentleman in the store who said, "There's a guy shooting".

They say they found the 16-year-old's stolen auto in the parking lot. "(The suspect) hijacks a vehicle apparently to get here, then hijacks another auto.

The gunman then went to Walmart, Wohl said.

That man is being hailed a hero by shoppers.

"He is a true hero because there would have been more victims", Adams said. "Some people were moving more slowly, they were still kinda confused what was going on, so I just started shouting, go, go, go!"

On this Father's day weekend, Robert Berwick swung by this Walmart around dinner time to pick up some items for a barbeque with his family. Something happened at the Walmart in Tumwater, Washington yesterday, but looking at multiple reports from the scene it sounds like we're not exactly sure what it was.

Brian Adams of Olympia said he was picking up pool supplies when he heard the shots and saw people running.
