Police say startled shoppers at the Colorado Walmart where a shooter opened fire and killed three stalled the search process after they drew their own handguns in defense.
The shoppers’ immediate response to the violent event ‘absolutely slowed’ investigation as it left authorities scanning through surveillance tapes in pursuit of the single armed attacker.
The few innocent yet armed individuals were eventually weeded out as suspects, amid the several hour-long investigation which began Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
A police spokesperson confirmed after the building had been deemed ‘safe enough’ to enter, officials quickly began examining footage from inside the supermarket, according to The Denver Post.
‘That’s when we started noticing that a number of individuals had pulled weapons,’ said Victor Avila, who works in part for the Thornton Police Department.


Hey, like Wisco said, at least they had enough trigger control that they didn’t shoot if they didn’t have a clear target.
I mentioned to my FIL just last night that I’m surprised he wasn’t shot down by private citizens, it being not only Colorado but also in a Walmart. Shit, at the Lafayette Walmart you see lots of shirts untucked with bulges on the right side.

    Wait, “deemed ‘safe enough’ to enter” for the police? Just like at the Pulse?

  2. John Deaux says:

    gun control = hitting your target
    or not if not necessary or called for

    Many of my neighborhood’s NC Walmart shoppers have the same “bulge”. Mostly on the right side, but we do have some “southpaws” who shop there too.

    Welllll, whoda thunk?

    Wait a minute! All the anti-gunners say in a situation like this, the concealed carry nuts will draw and start firing into the crowd indiscriminately, and there. will. be. blood. in. the. streets.
    Oh, well, another myth withers and dies.

    This is Colorado, more folks open carry here than concealed.

    I almost drove through Colorado, but didn’t.

    On my trip last week, I drove through Nevada, Arizona, ‘around Colorado’, through Utah, to Idaho and back. Fuck Colorado.

    Colorado doesn’t honor my Cali, AZ, or Utah ccw’s.

    • Wirecutter says:

      Nobody honors California’s permit because California doesn’t recognize any other states’ permits. What goes around comes around.
      And I’m assuming your Arizona and Utah permits are non resident permits?

    If you are seeing (gun) bulges under un-tucked shirts….it’s not really concealed carry is it?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
