GOOD: Police: Legally armed bystanders break up Walmart shooting.

Augusta Police say two bystanders, legally armed with handguns, stepped in during a shooting incident at a Walmart in Augusta.

Police say four suspects were taken into custody by police Sunday after allegedly firing gunshots in the parking lot of a Walmart.

The suspects involved were sitting in vehicles parked next to each other when the altercation arose. The occupants of one vehicle fired at the occupants of the other, which resulted in return gunfire.

When the shooting stopped, police said one suspect exited their vehicle to confront the occupants of the other. This is when two bystanders, who were legally carrying, interfered and stopped the incident, police said.

Augusta police say one of the men involved was injured. A bullet grazed the stomach of Kwiesha “Reggie” McBride of Harlem, New York.

Glad nobody else was hurt.
