— Police on Monday charged a second man in a shooting inside a Wal-Mart store late Friday.

Hurie Quick Jr., of 336 Cherokee Lane in Lillington, got into an argument with James Larry Kitchens 42, of 948 S. Bag St. in Sanford, while standing in the check-out line around 11 p.m., according to the arrest report.

During the argument, Quick assaulted Kitchens, who pulled out a gun and fired twice, the arrest report says.

No one was injured, but the store at 3310 N.C. Highway 87 South was evacuated and closed for about 25 minutes.

Quick was charged with assault and given a first court date of Sept. 9.

Kitchens faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm within city limits. He was released from the Lee County Jail under a $1,000 secured bond.

    What are you aiming at if you can fire 2 shots in a walmart and NOT hit anyone? I'm glad no one got hurt, but I'm just saying.

    "Kitchens faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm within city limits. He was released from the Lee County Jail under a $1,000 secured bond."

    So this guy carries a concealed weapon, discharges it in a store (inside city limits), and only has $1000 secured bond???

    What's it take in Lee County???

    God bless.

    Must think they're cowboys.

    I've been a CSM at two different Wal*Marts; I don't know who's the most vile, customer in the check out lines or the store managers who think their needs come before anything else in the world - even the customers, or the breaks or lunches of employees.

    Thank God no one was hurt.

    God bless.
