Omaha police fatally shoot armed man in Target store

Source: Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man with an AR-15-style rifle opened fire inside a Target store in Omaha, sending panicked shoppers and employees scrambling for safety before he was fatally shot by police Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said the man had “plenty of ammunition” and that evidence suggests he fired multiple rounds, but it wasn’t immediately known if he fired at anyone.

Schmaderer said no wounded people were found, and police had searched through the store “because there were some people hiding in there.”

Cathy Mahannah, a customer, said the scene inside the store was “sheer panic.”

4. Bingo

If he didn't fire at anyone, he was doing a suicide by cop, and just wanted to go out in a blaze of glory

6. The headline should have been:

"Man with assault weapon fire opens
fire inside Target store in Omaha, Nebraska, before police execute him".

Assault weapons, firearms, violence.

Murder-Death-Kill

13. Hello Maple Leaf

Instead of making only assault weapons easy to buy in the US, let's allow Walmart (or any other merchant) to sell hand grenades to the public.

YouTube will demonstrate manipulating the safety pin, pulling the arming pin, and then tossing the activated explosive into a crowd of people.

What's taking so long?

14. Every big box store should have its own heavily-armed paramilitary response team.


This would also cut down on shoplifting and people parking in the disabled spots without a permit.

15. Excellent suggestion. The US Department of Education must have heard your idea,

because they have a SWAT Team to go after dangerous loan defaulters.
