Tech student arrested at Wal-Mart
Ruston Police were called to the scene.
Capt. Kevin Peden said store management asked Saurage to remove his gun and put it in his car because he was scaring customers and workers. He refused. Louisiana law empowers the public display and carrying of firearms.
“Store management advised the Ruston Police officers that a text message was going around about a person that was going to enter Wal-Mart and kill two women employees,” Peden said in a release. “At this time, it is not known from where the texts originated.”
