PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania — Walmart north shooting of Philadelphia wounded at least 5 people including a customer Tuesday evening before the shooter apparently escaped from the store — and crashed a getaway car into a police SUV, reports said.
Police took the 30-year-old suspect, whose name is not released in public, into custody after workers at the Walmart in Cheltenham Township identified him. A woman was also reportedly apprehended.
The disagreement at the register caused the eruption of the incident, during which a man took a firearm from a woman and opened fire, police told the outlet.
A store manager and cashier were shot in the leg while a customer was shot in the arm, another cashier, Darrell Archer, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The motive of the shooting was not immediately clear.
Police said the suspect tossed a gun from his car before crashing into the police SUV. He engaged in a struggle with officers before they arrested him, police sources told the local news.
The suspect even tried to kick out the window of the police car, forcing officers to subdue him with a stun gun, the Inquirer added.
Two officers were hospitalized after the crash, according to the report.
