Two other suspects remain at large, and police do not have any information to share about their descriptions at this time. Officers are asking residents to report if they see anything suspicious.

Police said this particular Walmart will remain closed for some time due to the investigation. Officers evacuated the store initially to find a gun, which they said created a “panic” with the customers inside.

Police said the two suspects in custody will likely face charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle and aggravated assault.
