KY3 reports that Springfield Police “responded to a call of an active shooter at the Walmart: Neighborhood Market at Republic Rd.” They arrived to find the suspect wearing “body armor and military fatigues” and being held at gunpoint by an off-duty firefighter. UPDATE: At 4:10 p.m. SPD were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody.

Unless the Walmart had no firearms allowed signage this off duty fireman can be arrested and at the very least sued by the open carry person. The police department can also be charged with federal crimes in detaining a lawful open carry citizen without a valid charge or reason to stop and detain. They have charged him with terroristic threatening but what did he do to threaten anyone? According to the story he simply walked into the store with his weapon and pushed around a shopping cart while video taping himself. I believe he is most likely not real bright considering the recent shooting in El Paso but he broke no laws. He probably is an open carry activist and was making a video to display on You tube. Many open carry activists do wear body armor as the feel they need to have protection from overzealous police officers who may or may not know the law. I can see that this case will probably lead to lawsuits against the off duty fireman and the police department. We are headed towards some real issues over these types of arrests in Constitutional carry states. Many police do not know what their limits or the law is concerning legal firearm carry.
