    Police in Bellmead, Texas are looking for a woman who thought she was being helpful by shooting at an unarmed would-be purse snatcher in a Walmart parking lot as other bystanders were pursuing him.

    According to KWTX, the man snatched the purse of an elderly woman as she and a companion were unloading groceries in the parking lot.

    Between four and five men tackled the thief and pinned him to the ground, however he broke loose at which point a woman who was standing by and pointing a gun at both the thief and his pursuers as they wrestled with him took a shot at him as he attempted to flee.

    Although the man was not hit, he did stumble and was once again tackled.

    As he was being held, the woman — in jeans and a white t-shirt — can be seen calmly walking away with her gun in hand before reportedly getting in her truck and driving off prior to the police arriving.

    According to Bellmead police Detective Kory Martin, 27-year-old Andre Dawson was taken into custody for the failed purse snatching.

    Police are still searching for the shooter and have asked her to come forward.

    Cowardly fuck was trying to rip off an old lady, who cares if that other woman took a shot at him.

    It was a crowded area, she missed, she could have hit a car or a passerby. I get her intention, just not well thought out.

    When you're to the point that your weapon is drawn, don't expect perfect clarity.

    As opposed to the heroic thieves who stole California, Arizona, and Texas from the Mexicans? :)

    She did act irresponsibly and she will be going to jail when the cops catch up to her. You cant shoot a man in the back running away, not even in Texas.

    How do we know she was a permit holder? Either way, she was irresponsible.

    I have mixed feelings about this.
    She was certainly irresponsible but I'm betting this was not Andre's first criminal act.

    I'm impressed by the fact that no one hit the deck after she popped off a round and the way she calmly strolled back to her car and left.
    Texas is an interesting place.

    She showed us that she couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with a shotgun. What would your feelings be if a stray bullet killed a kid in the other parking lot?

    Not defending her. I agree it was reckless and uncalled for. Could have had some serious damage/injury to innocents.
    However, Andre needs to be taught some type of lesson.
    Vigilantism is a slippery slope.

    Also, first thing I noticed was her lack of accuracy with the weapon. If you're gonna carry or use, be trained and accurate.

    2 guys had a hold of the suspect, yet she still had her gun trained on him. Then as the guy is running she takes a shot. What an idiot.

    If I was there, I would of shot the purse out of the thief's hand. Then I would of shot him in the knee to prevent him from fleeing. Then I would of shot out the tires of that fat lady's truck to prevent her from driving off after she irresponsibly discharged her weapon. Then as a show of gratitude from the locals, I'd be awarded my choice of three Baylor cheerleaders. That's how I would of done it.

    Exactly. I'm a big proponent of the 2nd amendment, concealed carry, open carry, etc.

    HOWEVER, it's all about self defense. That purse snatcher was no direct threat to that woman. It was irresponsible for her to pull out her weapon, much less fire it. I hope the police catch her.
