Guessing this nut job didn't vote for Hillary....

The Springfield Police Department arrived on scene within three minutes of the call. Police stated that a young white male, appearing to be in his twenties, pulled up to the Walmart, where he donned body armor and military fatigues. Police say the man had tactical weapons.

Police then say the man walked into the Walmart: Neighborhood Market where he grabbed a cart and began pushing it around the store. Police say the man was recording himself walking through the store via a cell phone.

The store manager at the Neighborhood Market pulled a fire alarm, urging people to escape the store.

Police say the man then made his way out an emergency exit where a former firefighter held the man at gunpoint. At that moment Springfield Police arrived on scene and detained the man.

The Springfield Police Department could not confirm the nature of statements said by the man to those inside of the Walmart, but they do confirm that the man had loaded weapons, and over one hundred rounds of ammunition.

It was a terrible thing to do right after the two mass shootings, but what serious thing can they charge him with that will stick? Did he do anything wrong other than scare people? Do we know what his intentions were? Did he intend to shoot people, or was he just trying to get in the news?

Inducing a panic will stick if Missouri has that law. Not sure if they do.

I'm glad he was caught and did not shoot anyone.

Great example of a good guy with a gun being in the right place at the right time.

serious question. If you were in the store and armed also.....could you have shot this guy claiming self defense because you "felt threatened for your life" ?

You need to justify your actions when using deadly force. If for example he was walking with the rifle in a threatening manner (it's not shouldered and he is waving it around) and you shot him it's unlikely you would be prosecuted in most states. However if you lived in a state that does not have a castle doctrine/SYG law prosecutors could second guess your actions if for example you had the option to retreat. Even if the shooting was justified.

Suicide by cop? I'm not sure what else makes sense.
