A woman in a Shawnee, Kan., Walmart parking lot was attacked on Sunday afternoon by two men as she was putting her baby in a car seat. After being struck in the back of the head, she began screaming, alerting two bystanders who came to her rescue.
When the first good Samaritan approached, he was shot by one of the attackers. However, a second man came to their aid, shooting and killing one of the attackers and causing the other to flee. The second attacker was arrested a short time later.
Police told The Kansas City Star that the injured rescuer was awake, alert and scheduled for surgery. The woman was hospitalized with a critical head injury, but her condition has since been upgraded to “good” and she should be released soon. The baby was unharmed.
