MO Walmart Armed Suspect tells his Story

Dmitriy Andreychenko was arrested Thursday after going inside a Missouri Walmart with a firearm. He claims that he did it to conduct a social media experiment... 2nd ammendment audit. He walked inside Walmart in Springfield wearing a bullet proof vest, and packing a hand weapon and a rifle. He used a phone to record himself as he pushed a shopping cart through the store. He told CNN further that no one had been injured and he shared this plan with his sister before he did it. 


Law Enforcement disagree with Mr. Andreychenko an official stating "Missouri protects the right to open carry a firearm, but that right does not allow an individual to act in a reckless and criminal manner, endangering other citizens


One Lt was against the idea that Andreychenko's intentions were harmless. This just shortly after two devastating shootings, in El Paso and Dayton. He told CNN "he is lucky to be alive." 


"I wanted to know if that Walmart honored the 2nd ammendment," is what he told CNN. 


Walmart released its statement ~ "This was a reckless act designed to scare people, disrupt our business and it put our associates and customers at risk. We applaud the quick actions of our associates to evacuate customers from our store, and were thankful no one was injured," LeMia Jenkins Walmart spokesperson told CBS News. 


Both his sister and his wife tried to stop him from doing this. But he failed to listen.
