Felony Charge For Man Who Attacked Armed Shopper

posted on April 23, 2015

20-year-old Trevor Zumwalt was charged with felony assault after he allegedly attacked shopper Brandon Walker with a baseball bat inside a Yakima, Wash., Wal-Mart. Walker, who was openly (and legally) carrying a SIG Sauer P226, was struck once before drawing his gun. Once he had the gun out of the holster, he chambered a round and ordered Zumwalt to the ground while store employees summoned police.

It is not clear why Zumwalt targeted the visibly armed Walker: It is possible that he was trying to steal his handgun or was for some reason enraged by the sight of it. One might surmise that he has learned a lesson about attacking armed citizens. And he can credit Walker’s remarkable restraint in a life-or-death situation with the fact that he is still alive to learn it.
