Police shot and killed a woman who had taken a hostage at a Walmart store

Police fatally shot a woman who had taken a hostage at a Walmart store in Mississippi and was asking to speak to a TV news anchor.

Authorities say Corlunda McGinister, 21, of West Helena, Arkansas, was killed in the incident in Richland, Mississippi, according to CBS News.

Video posted on social media showed a woman holding a gun in one hand and another holding a person in a Walmart employee vest.

The woman with the gun shouted that she needed help and wanted to speak to the news anchor, CBS News reported.

Another video showed officers asking the woman to raise her hands as she shouted that she was not trying to hurt anyone.

No one else was injured in Wednesday’s shooting, Richland Police Chief Nick McLendon told WAPT-TV.

“It’s devastating for all parties involved – the officers, everyone who has been involved in this situation,” Chief McLendon said. “You know, with the Christmas season coming up, mental health is a big issue because of the stress of the Christmas season.”

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety is investigating the shooting and will share its findings with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office.
