    BAD: Lakewood WA, Armored Car Guard Shot

    No details right now - two shot, one is a guard.

    At least one guard shot at Lakewood Wal-Mart store | KOMO News - Seattle, Washington | Local & Regional

    LAKEWOOD, Wash. -- At least one and possibly both guards of an armored car were shot by a man outside the Wal-Mart store in Lakewood Tuesday afternoon, according to Lakewood police.

    It appears the shots were fired as the guards were heading into the store at 7001 Bridgeport Way West.

    Police say an additional person may also have been shot, but it's unclear if it was the original shooter or another person.

    No conditions are available for any of the victims.

    Video from Air 4 shows police evacuating the store.

    LAKEWOOD, Wash. – One person has been killed in a shooting during an armored car robbery at a Wal-Mart this afternoon and the search is on for two suspects.

    The store is located at 7001 Bridgeport Way in Lakewood. Video from the scene shows several police cars and ambulances outside the store.

    A spokesperson for Loomis Armored says one of its drivers has been shot. A second employee was on site but the spokesperson could not say if that employee is injured.

    Police initially said two people had been shot.

    The suspects are described as black males. One is 6 feet tall with an average build wearing a white hat with colored trim across the bill, a long sleeve white shirt and black pants.


    Surveillance images show two suspects in an armored car robbery outside a Lakewood, Wash. Wal-Mart on Tuesday, June 2, 2009.

    The second suspect is 6-feet to 6-feet 2-inches tall. He is wearing a blue baseball hat and a blue short sleeve button up short over a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

    Mount Tahoma High School was locked down as a precaution, but the lockdown was lifted about an hour later.

    I can't believe there wasn't at least 1 Wally World walk going on during this.

    I live not too far away from there... ITS WALMART!!! WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?

    My dad and I were at the range with the AR-15 and 12 Gauge... Oh if we would have been there in the parking lot when that went down... They would have left the parking lot in pieces.

    Umm...opening fire in that kind of situation sounds like begging to get shot by the police or armed guards. After all, you could be trying to kill the BGs just to rob them.

    True... But a couple 100 yard shots with a .223 round into the BGs would have been better for the rest of the community, knowing they were out of commission...

    It is just interesting to imagine being able to do that, but if it came down to it, would I have shot them... NO But I would have followed them and called police on the way...

    Two more dirtbag idiots who think they are in for some free quick cash...only to find themselves in jail for the rest of their lives. They will be caught.
    It's too bad they couldn't have had their trial and sentencing right at the scene of the crime.

    Unfortunately with the economy in the state it is in we are probably going to be seeing more of this type of thing. Hopefully the bad guys will be hunted down and do the right thing and kill themselves before the taxpayers have to pay for a trial.

    This was a disgusting act of cowardice, and a sad and needless waste of human life!

    Wow and I just applied to Loomis.

    this should show to everyone that SA is so important. sounds like the guards had fallen into the same old routine and maybe didn't have their guard up as much as it needed to be.

    very sad
