Shot fired in Walmart parking lot to break up fight

Three people tried to steal multiple TVs from the store.

PAW PAW, Mich. — A fight broke out and a shot was fired Wednesday morning in a Walmart parking lot after three people tried to steal multiple TVs, according to the Paw Paw Police Department. 

Around 10 a.m., three suspects in their twenties - two men and one woman - attempted to "push out" the TVs without paying at the Walmart on Kalamazoo Street. An employee tried to stop them and got into a fight with one suspect. 

Multiple people tried to help the employee. Meanwhile, another bystander was in fear for someone's life who was trying to help and fired a "warning shot," according to the police. 

Nobody was injured from the gunshot, but the employee was hurt in the fight and taken to the hospital, but is expected to be OK. One suspect has a cut in the palm of his hand from the fight. 

The police are looking for the three suspects who were driving a maroon 1999 Geo Prizm with a Michigan license plate number of EBY6727. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Paw Paw police or Van Buren County Dispatch at 269-657-3101.
