South Hill Shoppers Draw Guns On Suspected Shoplifter


Video is emerging of a pair of South Hill shoppers holding a suspected shoplifter at gun point.

The recording from June 26th shows two apparent bystanders drawing their guns on a suspected shoplifter to hold her in a car as they wait for police to show up outside of a Spokane grocery store.

KHQ reports an officer arrived and cited the suspected shoplifter for theft. The two people with the guns pulled have not been charged or cited. 

The man holding one of the firearms can be heard saying "I'm a Democrat. I can shoot you, because Democrats get away with everything."

Officer John O'Brien with Spokane Police tells KHQ "We don't encourage people to present a firearm over a misdemeanor crime."
