Man Injures Three In Texas Walmart Hatchet Attack

December 10, 2013 at 9:25 am by  

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.

    But.. but… but he looks so friendly! Sane, even.

    Oh, and that last line? Fucking nice.

  • Valerie

    This is what happens when women fuck pit bulls.

  • beatlechick

    He will claim that his blood sugar was low and he was just going in to procure a sweet tea, when he just got the sugar shakes and all choppy!!

  • Jycorro

    The bastard couldn’t get his hands on a chainsaw? Texas needs to step up their game.

  • Satori Komeiji

    Prices aren’t the only thing being chopped!

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    I never used no hatchet that I remember. Mmm..

  • thebossessecretary

    I kinda feel this way when I shop there for groceries every Saturday. There inevitably comes a point in the Walmart experience where you feel homicidal.

  • Vesper B

    I was wondering the same, but instead of chainsaw: a gun. My home state is failing

  • beatlechick

    It’s usually the moment I walk through the doors and some lack luster parent is toting a screaming child toward the toy department just to shut it up!

  • Buffettgirl

    For me it’s the check-out aisles… first of all, is it really possible that THIS many people do not own mirrors? Secondly, if you can’t corral your passel of 46 children, don’t bring them all to Walmart DAMMIT! The rest of us don’t give a shit how adorable YOU find their whiney, snot-nosed little faces…

  • beatlechick

    They don’t find them adorable. Each one is a walking dollar sign. KACHING!!

  • thebossessecretary

    The part where the entire family of twelve, including infants and the elderly grandmother, go grocery shopping together and move in a pack down the aisles at the speed of snails like a friggin’ museum tour while the children shriek. The part where they have three checkout stands open for 1000 people. The merchandise thrown all over the floor. The people who haven’t bathed this month. The clerks who know where nothing is. Take your pick.

    I’ve said it before and I will say it again…

    So… ban assault hatchets?

    “CONSUME, BUY, OBEY,” she commanded. You forgot and wear your best pair of stretch pants.

  • Lena60

    They know, the just don’t speak English to tell you.

  • Lena60

    Or cans of soup.

  • Lena60

    He looks like Woody Harrelson…which isn’t saying much.

  • LuvsHorror

    Yeah, that happens to me just before pulling into the parking lot.

  • LuvsHorror

    And why does it have to smell like used diapers?

  • JohnQknowitall

    I hope the employees’ public assistance helps with the medical bills.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Or possibly a son of Gene Hackman.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Costco has a better class of pushy people on Saturdays. Worth every penny for the membership.

  • beatlechick

    OMG and they cause an entire department traffic jam complete with multiple carts pushed by snot nosed brats. It’s like supermarket sweep without the fun and prizes.

  • LeaveMeBe

    You watch what you say about Woody! I love him!

  • LeaveMeBe

    Kudos to the dude who started chunking soup cans. Very resourceful.

  • Delaney3030

    Well hell, I don’t care if you did do violence against somebody. I ain’t of you.

  • Benighted

    If his Walmart is anything like ours, I believe he has a good case for a mitigating circumstances defense..
