HOBART, Ind. -- (WGN) -- An off-duty officer who happened to be shopping at the Hobart Walmart when shots rang out inside the store Sunday is speaking out.
East Chicago police detective Bill Johnsen was shopping with his family at the Walmart at 2936 E. 79th Ave. around 4 p.m. Sunday.
He said he heard the shots fired inside the store as hundreds ran for the exits.
“It was an all-out stampede to the door,” Johnsen said. “That’s not a sound you hear inside a store very often.”
