Firefighter Thwarts Possible Mass Shooting at Missouri Walmart

BREAKING: Good Guy With Gun Stops Potential Attack At Walmart After Man Shows Up With Rifle, Body Armor

Man detained after walking into Walmart armed with rifle and body armor

A man in his 20s has been arrested after he walked into a Walmart in the U.S. state of Missouri carrying a loaded tactical rifle and wearing a shooting vest.

Police tell KY3 a man appearing to be in his 20s, pulled up to the store donning body armor.

No injuries or fatalities have been reported, and no shots were fired, police said.

"He walked in here heavily armed with body armour on and military fatigues and caused a great amount of panic inside the store", Springfield Police Department Lt. Mike Lucas told reporters.

"I knew something was wrong when I saw the employees, employees running for the doors".

Officers took the man into custody "without incident" after a store patron - identified by the Associated Press as an off-duty firefighter - held Andreychenko at gunpoint outside the building, according to authorities.

Andreychenko entered the Walmart Neighborhood Market on Thursday afternoon, Lucas said. He said he had bought the rifle and body armor because of three recent shootings and a stabbing, and wanted to protect himself.

Police say they are still trying to determine the motives for the man's actions.

This past weekend, there were two deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and in Dayton, Ohio.

Days before, 20 people had been killed in a Walmart in El Paso by a gunman carrying an automatic rifle.

Andreychenko started to record himself with his phone while he was still in the auto parked at Walmart. And the statute in the spotlight in Andreychenko's case is R.S. MO 574.120, which says a person commits making a terrorist threat in the second degree if he or she meets at least a couple of criteria. "In fact, he's lucky to be alive still to be honest".

Andreychenko said he heard the fire alarm go off while he was inside the store, and made his way to an exit.

She said that he typically keeps a vest and a gun in the trunk of his vehicle.

He also could be charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance, or a different misdemeanor if he was told to leave the store and didn't, Wampler said.

Missouri is an open-carry state which means state law allows gun owners to openly carry firearms.
