Video from a bystander shows a woman pull out a gun during a fight inside a Walmart store in Novi on Monday afternoon. The two Farmington Hills women allegedly started pulling the 20-year-old's hair, and the younger woman's mother apparently felt her protective instincts kick in. While there, the unnamed 32- and 46-year-old pair came across another woman, 20, shopping with her 51-year-old mother.
It is not yet clear what charges the woman who pulled the gun out will face, but police have confirmed they are preparing charges. "She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them".
►Make it easy to keep up to date with more stories like this. But a mum in the United States has taken the angst to a whole new level one pulling a gun on several other women during an argument over school supplies. "There was one left, some pushing resulted", Baetens said.
Only one notebook remained on the shelf, and two women reached for it at once.
Scott Baetens told WJBK that the dispute was over a notebook in the back-to-school aisle.
"It was a senseless act of violence all the way around", a police representative said.
Police are looking to determine which of the shoppers was the aggressor, and if in fact the firearm was drawn in self-defense.
The police noted that while the gun was loaded there was no round in the chamber.
"A simple assault could be just a local ordinance, a 90-day misdemeanor". Thankfully, no one was hurt.
It's not clear who got the notebook, authorities said.
