A young man with a rifle, a handgun, 100+ rounds of ammo and body armor entered a Springfield, Missouri Walmart.
Police said the man was wearing body armor and military fatigues when he walked into the store around 4:30 p.m., according to a report from KYTV. He was carrying a rifle, roughly 100 rounds of ammunition and was walking around the store recording video with a cellphone.
“His intent was not to cause peace or comfort … He’s lucky he’s alive still, to be honest,” Lt. Mike Lucas told KYTV.
Police say the man was recording himself walking through the store using his phone.
The store manager at the Neighborhood Market pulled a fire alarm, urging shoppers to escape the store.
Police say the man then made his way out of an emergency exit where a firefighter held the man at gunpoint.
