Tim O. Day, a 44-year-old man, was killed by one of two armed civilians after opening fire inside a Walmart and injuring at least two people.


It all happened on Sunday afternoon, June 17, 2018. At around 5:30 p.m, the Thurston County Sheriff's Office received numerous calls regarding shots being fired at the Tumwater Walmart, in Washington D.C.

According to The Washington Post, Day entered the store and fired a few shots at a display case before heading out into the parking lot, where he tried to carjack a vehicle.

The man inside, Ricky Fievez, refused to give up his car and was shot twice. He's currently in critical condition at Harborview Hospital.

His son, Tyler Fievez, set up a GoFundMe account in order to raise money for the medical expenses. Fievez shared that his father was paralyzed, having lost part of his spleen and pancreas and that fragments of the bullets were lodged into his spine.


After witnessing the carjacking victim get hit, two civilians pulled out their own handguns and one of them, a local pastor whose identity is yet to be revealed, fatally shot Day.

Laura Wohl, a Tumwater police public information officer, claimed that the pastor had a concealed carry permit and several witnesses called him a hero for his actions.

According to Wohl, before Day's appearance at the Walmart, police was notified about a drunk driver heading the wrong way near a local high school, as well as a carjacking attempt that left a 16-year-old with a couple of injuries.


It is believed that Day was the one responsible for those crimes, having passed by Walmart later in the afternoon.

This was just another episode in the long series of shootings across the United States, and new nail in the coffin of the arguments used by those who time and time again stand by the right to bear arms.
