2 dead after Walmart shooting

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – The Beavercreek Police Department confirms that an officer shot and killed a rifle-waving suspect at the Walmart store.

Officers say they responded to the Walmart on Pentagon Boulevard at 8:21 p.m. on reports that a man was waving a rifle type weapon at customers.

A statement released early Wednesday morning states: “Responding officers confronted the suspect inside the store area and the subject was shot after failing to comply with officers verbal commands.”

The 22-year-old man was taken to Miami Valley Hospital where he died.

The second victim in this event apparently died from some sort of medical collapse.  She is identified as Angela Williams, 37, of Fairborn.  The coroner’s office says she was running away from the incident when she collapsed.  She died at Soin Medical Center.  An autopsy will be completed today, but results are not expected for several weeks.
