In that three people were down by the police, with one of them shot, there sounds like there will be a whole lot more to this story later. Importantly, the witness suggested that the shooting was inside the store.
Most likely just another innocent Trayvon only there to buy skittles!
Wow! My daughter is a student at A&M, and that is the Walmart she and other students usully shop at.
They are “Sons of Obama”, now.
More of them than you could shake a stick at. Hopefully a fire stick.
This makes two shootings at Texas Walmarts in as many weeks. An officer was killed at an Austin Walmart a couple weeks ago and now this at College Station.
The Walmart near me is no longer open 24 hours, the guys who look like Obamaâ’s son kept attacking people at night.
NO!!! They are sons of barack (SOB’s)

College Station police Friday evening continued to investigate a shooting at Walmart where a 911-caller described a "shoplifting gone wrong."
A man was whisked off to The Med less than two miles away where he was listed in critical condition, according to officials. Witnesses at the scene said the person taken to the hospital was a suspect; it wasn't clear if he had been armed.
Several customers said they saw a loss prevention officer wrestling with a man at the exit near the Home and Living section of the popular discount store off F.M. 2818 near Texas Avenue.
Two other witnesses said they heard three gunshots go off while they were in the store.
It was two hours before police confirmed no hostage situation was underway and that they believed no customers or employees were in harm's way.
Police would not say what type of wounds the patient suffered from.
A call to police from inside the store was logged at 4:05 p.m., saying a shoplifting had "gone wrong" and there had been a shooting, according to Officer Rhonda Seaton.
Tactical officers surrounded that entrance by 4:40 p.m. and went inside within 10 or so minutes. More than a dozen patrol cars are at the scene.
Two people who were inside the store told an Eagle reporter that they heard three shots fired just after 4 p.m. Officials said many customers at the store were rushed out the back after hearing the shots.
A spokeswoman with Walmart's corporate offices in Bentonville, Ark., said store officials are en route to the College Station site and won't have a comment until they knew more.
I ALWAYS carry at Wal Mart.
Just how many sons does this Obummer guy have anyway?
Maybe there is something to this polygamy/baby momma stuff after all...
Terrible story; hope everyone is ok, but I couldn't resist.
