Novi officers say Monday afternoon two Farmington Hills women, ages 32 and 46, were inside the Novi Towne Center Walmart shopping for school supplies.
According to an official police report filed in Novi, Michigan, two Farmington Hills women were inside a Walmart shopping for school supplies.
But things got truly out of control when a 51-year-old, whose daughter was one of the women involved in the fracas, pulled out a firearm to protect her.
It is not yet clear what charges the woman who pulled the gun out will face, but police have confirmed they are preparing charges.
►Make it easy to keep up to date with more stories like this. There was one left, some pushing resulted.
Both groups of women wanted to buy the last notebook on the shelf, and an argument broke out over who reached for the notebook first, according to witnesses.
She IS a licensed CPL holder, but that doesn't change the fact that she pulled a gun out in a store over a squabble for a notebook.
"It was a senseless act of violence all the way around", said Baetens.
Local authorities are now calling on witnesses to come forward, as they attempt to get surveillance footage from the Walmart to further investigate the case.
Police spoke with prosecutors who hope to determine if it was self-defense and who the aggressors were. All four women could be facing charges for assault, which carries a 90-day sentence.
The police noted that while the gun was loaded there was no round in the chamber. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
