A good guy with a gun stopped a man carrying a rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition in a Springfield, Missouri, Walmart Thursday.

KY3 reports that Springfield Police “responded to a call of an active shooter at the Walmart: Neighborhood Market at Republic Rd.” They arrived to find the suspect wearing “body armor and military fatigues” and being held at gunpoint by an off-duty firefighter.

Police said the man was carrying weapons and 100 rounds of ammunition, and that he had entered the Walmart, grabbed a cart, and pushed it around the store. Police noted the suspect “was recording himself walking through the store via a cell phone.”

The suspect was detained by police.
