A man has been banned from an Ohio Walmart after he allegedly threatened to shoot shoppers on Saturday afternoon.
According to a police report, a Walmart employee said that two men entered the store and said they would start shooting people because they were unable to buy a gun.
Another employee said that the men, one of whom was intoxicated, attempted to start a bank account. The man became angry when he was asked to leave, but the bank manager was unaware of any shooting threats.
The other man went to the automotive department for an oil change, where police asked him to drive his drunk friend home.
Before leaving, the intoxicated man signed a form banning him from entering Walmart in the future.
Interestingly, police shot neither man — something that may have happened if the men were African-American and carrying a pellet gun. John Crawford III was gunned down “on sight” in a Beavercreek, Ohio Walmart after a white man called in a fraudulent claim that Crawford was “like, pointing [the gun] at people” and that he was “like, loading [the gun] right now”
After he discovered that video cameras exist, the “witness” changed his story. “At no point did he shoulder the rifle and point it at somebody,” he later said — much too late to save the life of a man he helped murder.
