UPDATE: Two Men Charged Following Altercation At Walmart in Sevierville, Tennessee



Just two walmart shoopers with guns having a dispute........

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Despite initial reports of an active shooter situation at the Sevierville Walmart on the Parkway, police said no shots were ever fired and nobody was hurt. However, three people were taken into custody and two people were eventually charged after multiple guns were displayed during a dispute between customers.  According to police, 65-year old Pedro Salisipan Ngayan, Jr. of Pigeon Forge, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and 22-year old Dashawn Leon Bonner of Pensacola, Florida, was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault.  Bonner is accused of pushing Ngayan down during a fight and Ngayan is accused of responding by pointing a handgun at Bonner. Authorities said Bonner ‘retreated to another location in the store’ but was followed by Ngayan. Bonner then pointed his own handgun at Ngayan, according to police.  Police said they took a third person into custody but later determined that person was not part of the dispute Source

What's unsual about this is that the police gave an immediate description of two of the suspects:

1. African American

2. Pacific Island Descent.

That's unusual
