VIDEO: Police Shoot, Kill Man in Ohio Walmart

The Beavercreek (Ohio) Police Department confirms that one of its officers shot and killed a rifle-waving suspect at a Walmart store Tuesday night, reports WDTN.

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 Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has released the identity of the Walmart shooting suspect: John Crawford, 22, of Fairfield. He 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.

Good shooting on the officers part, sorry to hear about the lady. To bad Lenny, wasn't there he would be able to understand the danger police encounter.

Back in the 1960's it became clear that communists will never understand anything they wish to not understand. It is a mental illness, they wallow in hatred, and have no desire to understand whom they hate. Too bad today we fail to call a communist what it is. I guess it takes fighting a war and seeing their brain dead mindset in action and the relentless hate they love to harbor, and the evil they perpetrate on the innocent to really grasp what they are all about. I have sat silent on Lenny but studied him as he writes here and other places, one just like a musician or band has a style that shows through their music or in this case writing that shows who they are.

Why are you guys baiting Lenny today? He's quiet for a change.
