Augusta police: Legally armed bystanders break up Walmart shooting

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Augusta Police say two bystanders, legally armed with handguns, stepped in during a shooting incident at a Walmart in Augusta.

Police say four suspects were taken into custody by police Sunday after allegedly firing gunshots in the parking lot of a Walmart.

The suspects involved were sitting in vehicles parked next to each other when the altercation arose. The occupants of one vehicle fired at the occupants of the other, which resulted in return gunfire.

When the shooting stopped, police said one suspect exited their vehicle to confront the occupants of the other. This is when two bystanders, who were legally carrying, interfered and stopped the incident, police said.


And, of course, the obligatory:
Police say while this incident ended fine, they do not encourage citizens to step in. Be "good witnesses," they told NEWS CENTER.


There's a link in the comments to this PRIORITIES FOR RESEARCH TO REDUCE THE THREAT OF FIREARM-RELATED VIOLENCE
Some one complained that it's too long to read and a commenter posted this:
the report he linked is the one President Obsma ordered the CDC to prepare after Sandy Hook. It's heavy on notations, you can read the whole thing in about 20 minutes or just skim to the part about defensive firearm use. When you get around to reading it, also note injuries sustained by victims use self defense methods other than firearms.


I've opened the link in a separate window and will read through it today at my leisure.
