Armed Cop Sees Thug Pull Gun on Walmart Employee, Sends Him Running for His Life

A criminal’s petty shoplifting attempt almost cost him his life after his thuggery was thwarted by unbelievably bad timing.

The suspect was spotted trying to exit an Arizona Walmart with stolen goods.

The store’s loss prevention employee challenged the crook as he tried to leave the premises.

When he was met near the door by the Walmart employee, the shoplifter pulled a gun on the staff member.

However, as the thug pulled the gun on the Walmart employee, an armed off-duty police officer was walking into the store and saw what was unfolding.

Although the officer was off-duty, he was uniformed and carrying his weapon.

When the thief produced a weapon as he was confronted, the police officer immediately drew his own, according to local station KTVK.

Phoenix Police ultimately apprehended the suspect in a neighborhood west of the business.

Police were also able to recover Apana’s firearm.

Apana is facing charges of aggravated assault on a police officer and armed robbery in connection to the incident.

Some customers who were at the Walmart during the incident are worried about the business’ emergency procedures.

“I’m concerned about their evacuation procedure,” Joe Torres said of the Walmart, according to KTVK.

“It seems like there isn’t any.

“That’s the only thing I’m concerned about.”

Another shopper expressed fear about the safety of the Walmart.

“It’s going to feel pretty scary to shop here because you don’t know what’s going to happen or who you’re around with,” Veronica Vela said of the business.

No one was injured in the shooting.
