How NOT to Defend Yourself: WALMART SHOOTING NORTH VERSAILLES: Woman who allegedly shot another woman inside Walmart turns herself in to police :: 07/08/2019

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. - The woman who Allegheny County Police believe is responsible for shooting another woman inside the North Versailles Walmart turned herself in Saturday evening. 

Alston is accused of shooting another woman inside the North Versailles Walmart.

Police said the shooting happened just before 10 p.m. in the electronics department when two women started fighting with a third woman.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim was there with another woman, who had "beef" with 22-year-old Rojanai Alston.

The two are seen on video walking up to Alston, starting a fight and pulling her hair, according to police. That's when Alston reached for her gun.

The two ran off, and police say Alston fired several shots at the other woman.

Alston then walked down an aisle and shot the victim in the hand and leg, according to police. She left the store before she could be arrested.

According to the criminal complaint, Alston has a concealed carry permit that is valid for two guns. 

"At least nine or 12 shots and then everyone started running," a person who was inside the store at the time of the shooting told Channel 11. 

The 25-year-old victim is in critical condition.

Alston, of Penn Hills, is charged with criminal attempted homicide and aggravated assault. She was arraigned and released on $25,000 bail. 

The store was on lockdown but has since reopened. 

"Our thoughts are with the victim and her family. We are working with law enforcement to provide any assistance we can as part of the ongoing investigation, as well as performing a review of our own," the spokesperson said.

JUST IN: This is the woman police say is responsible for shooting another woman inside a local @Walmart last night.
