SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Two people who pointed handguns at a suspected shoplifter in Spokane and threatened to shoot her have received some cautionary advice from police: Be reasonable.
A video posted on Facebook shows a woman being held at gunpoint in her car by people who believed she stole from a store on Friday.
36-year-old Annamarie Kirkpatrick was cited for shoplifting, a gross misdemeanor.
Video taken by bystanders shows a man and a woman drew their handguns and pointed them at the woman as she sat in her car. Police say neither the man nor the woman with a gun have been charged with a crime.
