PD: Man arrested after discharging gun inside Walmart Reported by: Samantha Fitzgerald

EL MIRAGE, AZ -- A west Valley Wal-Mart customer was arrested Thursday after accidentally firing a round while playing with his pistol inside the store.

El Mirage Police Department spokesman Robert Peoples said officers were dispatched to the store near Thunderbird and Dysart roads after a call came in that shots had been fired.

While officers were en route, they discovered no one had been injured and that the store manager was standing with the suspect.

Peoples said the suspect was identified as 30-year-old David Walters, of Surprise.

During the officer's investigation, witnesses said Walters entered the store carrying a semi automatic pistol in a holster.

According to witnesses, Walters continually "messed" with the gun while it was in the holster. He would reportedly holster and un-holster the gun, which made the other customers and employees nervous.

Does this fellow have a “web presence”?

Would be curious to know if he is a D U or Daily Kos regular.

Walters reportedly approached the checkout lane and while standing at the end of the counter, he pulled the gun out of his holster again.

Let me guess, a laid off rocket scientist?

Yep, looks like an idiot.

He should stick to a water pistol or stay in his room and play with that other toy, much safer.

It probably does not go off any more..

So naturally, he assumed the pistol wouldn't either.

Peoples said the suspect was identified as 30-year-old David Walters, of Surprise. Peoples of Why, questioned the suspect.

David Walters, of Surprise. Peoples of Why, questioned the suspect.

Residents of Uncertain, Texas, remain skeptical...

Pacifica, California is over 750 miles away from Surprise, Arizona.

Probably not but the description is likely still accurate.

Curious though that it should happen just as this was taking place today:

That is a concealed carry law. Doesn’t seem to fit this guys attempt.

Tough to keep it concealed and keep pulling it out and playing with it.

Given that there are a lot of people with that name, and the Daily KOS guy is about 750 miles away from this event, perhaps FReepers will choose a more likely target.

Who knows....but we both know how the bed wetters will spin it, that's the only point I was making.

I completely agree with that!!
