30-year old David Sterling Walters (inset) entered an Arizona Walmart last Thursday with gun and fired it at the ceiling near the video game department. Walters has been taken into custody and is being held on $1,530 bond. Six witnesses are willing to testify; he faces charges including six counts of endangerment, one count of disorderly conduct, and one count of discharging a firearm within city limits. In other Walmart news, the superstore's photo developers peep customers photos leading to parents AJ and Lisa Demaree losing custody of their three daughters after a Walmart employee reported naked photos of their children—taken during playtime and in the bathtime—to the authorities. The case against the Demarees was eventually dismissed. [Antiwar, AZCentral, Daily Caller]
