A SWAT team shot and killed an armed suspect who took hostages at a Walmart in Amarillo, Texas Tuesday afternoon, investigators confirmed, saying all the hostages are now safe.

Police identified the gunman late Tuesday as 54-year-old Mohammad Moghaddam.

Moghaddam, who was an employee at that Walmart, took two other workers hostage, local media reported. One of the hostages was the store manager, relatives told the Amarillo Globe-News.

“We do consider this a work-place violence situation at this point,” the sheriff’s office said. City officials first reported an “active shooter incident” at 12:30 p.m. local time.

Police earlier said they were looking for a Somali man wearing khaki pants, KFDA added. Officers reportedly were evacuating shoppers from the west side of the store in the Texas Panhandle.


Yes, but neither religion nor political ideology were involved. The hostage-taker was apparently upset about being passed over for promotion.



Gee, I wonder what the shooter’s affiliation was? Oh yeah, not surprised at all.

Just another day in our politically correct world. :rolleyes:

Whatever problem occurs, it is never the fault of the Muslims. This is according to mainstream media, Hollywood…even the Church hierarchy and the Vatican. Woohoo.


I never understood a man with a family that has bad news at work killing his co-workers and in the process destroying his family. He is leaving his family in poverty. :sad_yes:
