An armed man wielding an assault rifle and 100 round of ammunition filmed himself as he entered a Missouri Walmart before he was stopped by a hero firefighter who held him at gunpoint.
Panicked shoppers were sent fleeing when the 20-year-old entered the store wearing a bullet proof vest and military-style clothing in Springfield on Thursday afternoon.
Police later arrested Dmitriy Andreychenko and say the man was recording himself while pushing a shopping cart and was making comments to shoppers as they fled the 'chaotic' scene.
After the 3150 W. Republic Road store manager pulled the fire alarm, the suspect escaped out of an emergency exit where an armed off-duty firefighter stopped him until police arrived.
