  •  Apparently in Anchorage a "service dog" (5+ / 0-)

    was a factor in a dispute that apparently involved yet another "responsible" owner of a "service revolver"?

    Anchorage, Alaska --  A 45-year-old man driving a motorized shopping cart in a big-box discount department store shot the store’s 33-year-old assistant manager during a dispute over an unleashed dog the shopper brought with him into the store. The victim was struck once in the mid-section. He was in stable condition.
    And guess where this shooting happened?

    Man driving motorized shopping cart shoots Anchorage Walmart employee

    Police have not yet identified the shooter, but said he is 45 years old. His alleged victim, 33-year-old Jason Mahi, was in surgery Saturday afternoon, a police spokeswoman said.

    The suspect, a double amputee with metal, prosthetic legs, entered the Walmart store with his service dog not on a leash, Sgt. Cameron Hokenson said. Mahi, a manager at the store, asked the man to leave in the sporting goods section, police said.

    "There was some kind of dispute," Hokenson said. "They were escorting him out of the store and something happened on the way out where the suspect pulled out a weapon and shot the employee."
