Police Release Footage of Apple Store Shooting

At around 10 a.m. on Friday, July 3, a man entered an Apple store in Arlington, Virginia through an entrance at the rear of the premises. The suspect led one employee, a 26 year old female who’s identity has not been released, off camera and while it is not yet clear what the man wanted, police reports say the employee was shot at the scene. The suspect then fled the store, using the same back entrance.

The Washington Post reports that the police have spoken to the woman who is in hospital and in a serious but stable condition. The Post cites Police spokeswoman, Detective Crystal Nosal as saying the victim was sedated at the time of the interview and will probably be interviewed several more times.

The suspect was last seen fleeing the scene on foot, wearing a light-colored, short sleeve shirt, light-colored long pants, and a dark baseball cap. The suspect was also carrying a handgun. The surveillance footage released is embedded below.

    Thankfully this article's far less offensive than the original one. There's a time and a place for jokes and opinions and luckily, Jane understands this.

    I hope the lady who was shot will be ok and that they catch this guy. It's still a bit of a mystery as to what the suspect wanted to achieve in the first place. He doesn't appear to be leaving with any merchandise or money after all.

    Sucks that she was shot over nothing since he didn't even steal anything.

    Gosh, if I was shot in the shoulder, the guy better do it for more than an iPhone.

    I think Apple Inc needs a new policy that they welcome employees with CHL to carry while working.

    Why would you try to rob an Apple store? They don't hold much money, most of it's in credit. If you steal an Iphone, you will be robbed by ATT!

    The point of such a policy is the notion that an employee MIGHT be concealing...

    Oh who are we kidding, those Apple store kids are sitting ducks. What they need is a new position at the Genius Bar, a guy wearing a camo patterned Apple T shirt that says "I have a loaded gun on my hip". They might even have a chance of attracting the right wing crowd that way; who knows, it could pay for itself even if the store doesn't get robbed.

    Some of the most die-hard gun nuts videos on YouTube shows that those gun-porn film producers prefer macs over Windows machines. Apparently, people who spend more time on reloading don't care extra few hundred bucks on computers and don't want to deal with computer problems. You're stereotyping people who work in Apple Store as liberal, gay, metrosexual or all of above, and showing your overall mental capacity by calling names on me.

    Or maybe the country needs a complete ban on guns like the rest of the civilised world...
