Mom pulls gun during a Walmart ‘back to school’ scuffle to protect daughter
A scuffle in a Michigan Walmart over a notebook escalated when a woman pulled a loaded gun, scattering shoppers, and now state prosecutors reportedly are weighing whether to bring charges.
The trouble began when the woman’s 20-year-old daughter allegedly grabbed the notebook at the Walmart in Novi Monday from two other women.
“There was one left, some pushing resulted,” Novi Police Detective Scott Baetens told Fox 2 Detroit. “They began to argue who was the rightful purchaser of that notebook.”
The gun appeared when the scuffling grew more violent, with hair-pulling.
“She’s a valid (Concealed Pistol License) holder,” the detective said. “She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them.”
