WA: Armed Witness Pusues Suspect in Jewelry Theft, Holds Suspect for Police

Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said a person witnessed the theft, so he pursued Thompson into the parking lot of a nearby hotel. That witness was cornered near a fence at the hotel, she said.

“The suspect then started coming toward the citizen, which put him in fear for his safety. The citizen, who has a concealed weapons permit, displayed his firearm and asked bystanders to call police,” Kapp said.

The citizen was determined to have pulled out his gun in self-defense, Kapp said. She added that police advise against pursuing suspects, especially for property crimes.
