Leon WallsPittsburgh, PA – On Monday, 41-year-old Leon Walls walked inside a Pittsburgh Target and used a long kitchen knife to stab three people, including a teenage girl.

Walls allegedly ran into the East Liberty store, after stabbing Jobe Wright in the arm. Walls headed towards the restrooms at the back of the store while Wright and another man searched for him in the store, one of whom was carrying a baseball bat.

Walls ended up at the checkout lane, where he grabbed 16-year-old Allison Meadows – who was in town from Tennessee to visit family – and used her as a shield.

“You come close, I’ll stab her,” Walls allegedly warned the men before stabbing Meadows twice in the back.

“He kept stabbing her. Me and like four or five other guys, they ran and tackled him. He cut the one guy’s lip almost off. The other guy’s finger was, like, hanging off,’ one witness said.

When police arrived, they found found a group of people where holding Walls to the ground, and multiple people where suffering stab wounds. Roland Smith was stabbed in the right hand, while Wright had a new wound to the face to go with the one to his arm.

But Walls didn’t escape injury. Before police used pepper spray and a Taser on him, a bit of vigilante justice was served. “He was getting his tail whooped with a bat, with fists,” said Chris Jones. “He was getting tore up and I think he deserved it.”

Paramedics were able to get the injured to the hospital, where most everyone is listed in good condition. Allison Meadows was in serious condition at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh after undergoing surgery for a collapsed lung. Allison was back  on her Twitter today, so it looks like she’ll be ok.

Leon Walls has been charged with charged with criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, REAP, unlawful restraint, possessing instruments of a crime, simple assault and resisting arrest. He’s currently being held at the Allegheny County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.

  • Athena

    I’ll bet this guy’s going to the psych ward where, no, people don’t get their ass beat for this kind of shit… but rather because they smell like purple and their arm hair kept talkin’ shit to the wrong inmate.

    Dreamin’ Demon Life Lesson #374 Always visit the baseball bat section in a box store first. If you can’t carry one in with you, carry one of theirs around.

    So did he have a purpose? Probably not. He obviously wasn’t trying to bait them into killing him.

    “You come close, I’ll stab her,” Walls allegedly warned

    Aaaaaand that’s when someone sneaks up behind him and boots him in the head. He can’t see everything at once.

    This is what happens when you try and build a retail center in the middle of a ghetto.

  • Bwwwwhaaaa!! Love the comment Morbid!! I am sure sharing this and using that tag line!!

  • It’s a shame Athena didn’t get her hands on this story, as I feel “got all stabby” would’ve made a better article headline. No offense, Morbid.

  • curiousalways

    Walls must have gotten lost that day, surely he meant for this to happen in a Walmart, not a Target.

  • Dragonsmuse

    I’m going to assume he was on drugs.
    It also looks like his face didn’t get beat up too badly, what a shame.

  • driven .

  • JGo555
