Police investigating Walmart gun incident

Mount Pleasant Police Department officers are seeking information into a gun-wielding incident inside of Walmart Sunday afternoon.

    At 1:44 p.m., officers were dispatched to the store located at 2311 S. Jefferson regarding a woman with a gun.  Through the course of the investigation, officers determined two women had an argument earlier in the store with another woman and man.

   When both groups approached the check-out area, the argument escalated and a pistol was then brandished by one of the individuals.  Officers arrived on scene, separated the parties, recovered the weapon and collected it as evidence.

   As an active investigation, the case will be presented to prosecutors for further action.  Anyone present during the incident who has not been interviewed by the MPPD is asked to please contact the Investigations Unit at 903-575-4004.
