Man Injures Three In Texas Walmart Hatchet Attack

Christopher HamiltonMARSHALL, TX – Police have arrested a man who entered a Texas Walmart and began swinging a hatchet, injuring three people.

Three people inside a Texas Walmart were injured early Sunday morning after 27-year-old Christopher Hamilton, a transient from Arkansas, walked into the store wielding a hatchet.

Two of the injured were a Walmart employee and a customer who tried to stop Hamilton’s attack on a female employee. According to police, there is no known motive for the attack, and Hamilton did not know any of the people he injured.

“Evidently [the customer] had grabbed some cans of soup off of the stack and started throwing them at [the man with the hatchet] to get him off of the associate, and I believe he hit him in the back of the head and that’s when the guy took off running,” says Stewart.

After getting hit in the head with a can of soup, Hamilton fled the store and ran into a nearby wooded area. With the help of some K-9 units, police were able to locate Hamilton a little over an hour later. He was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Hamilton’s bond was set at $225,000.

The two injured people who tried to stop the attack were injured but not hospitalized. The woman Hamilton allegedly attacked first remained in the hospital and was expected to be released the next day.

Walmart Corporate Media Relations representative Betsy Hardin said the incident could have been a lot worse, and that despite a homeless man chopping people in their store with a hatchet, everyone remains in good spirits. “CONSUME, BUY, OBEY,” she commanded.
