FRANKLIN -- It was early Friday morning, March 3rd near a 24-hour Walmart store in Franklin, a report of shots fired. Customers say they were kept inside the store for a time while police rushed to the parking lot.
Driving across the country for a living, truck driver Kurt Kovaly has stopped a lot of places for a bit of shut eye in his truck. As he parked his rig in the Walmart parking lot in Franklin, he wouldn't sleep long.
"I woke up to the sound of a car speeding out of the parking lot," said Kovaly.
The sound of a speeding car and loud muffler wasn't the only thing Kovaly would hear.
"About two seconds, three seconds after I heard it go by, I heard what I think was gunshots. I don't think it is confirmed yet, but gunshots; pop, pop, pop. So I jumped out of the bunk immediately," said Kovaly.
Kovaly says he started rolling his camera as police quickly poured into the lot.
"They got this guy at gunpoint right now at the Walmart," Kovaly says in the video.
Franklin police say people in two vehicles were arguing when one fired shots into the other car. No injuries, but officers not only from Franklin, but Oak Creek and Greenfield also helped arrest the suspect.
"They surrounded somebody at the front of the Walmart and I could hear them giving commands to whoever it was to either get out of a vehicle or do something. They were giving somebody commands," Kovaly said. "It's pretty intense, pretty scary you know that somebody would be driving around the Walmart parking lot shooting at other people."
Some shoppers say they were kept inside during the arrest. For Kurt Kovaly, he's back on the road headed to Massachusetts -- happy to be headed home.
"Thank God nobody got hurt. That's the important part," said Kovaly.
The investigation is ongoing and the case will be reviewed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office at a later date.
