Police in Bellmead, Texas are looking for a woman who thought she was being helpful by shooting at an unarmed would-be purse snatcher in a Walmart parking lot as other bystanders were pursuing him.
According to KWTX, the man snatched the purse of an elderly woman as she and a companion were unloading groceries in the parking lot.
Between four and five men tackled the thief and pinned him to the ground, however he broke loose at which point a woman who was standing by and pointing a gun at both the thief and his pursuers as they wrestled with him took a shot at him as he attempted to flee.
Although the man was not hit, he did stumble and was once again tackled.
As he was being held, the woman — in jeans and a white t-shirt — can be seen calmly walking away with her gun in hand before reportedly getting in her truck and driving off prior to the police arriving.
According to Bellmead police Detective Kory Martin, 27-year-old Andre Dawson was taken into custody for the failed purse snatching.
Police are still searching for the shooter and have asked her to come forward.

Ex-counterintel official explains how lobbying laws could bring down Rudy Giuliani
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former Justice Department counterintelligence official David Laufman explained to Chris Cuomo how President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani could go down for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
"Why does this matter, this area of the law?" asked Cuomo.
"This was a statute enacted in the 1930s in response to pro-Nazi German elements of the United States, engaged in subversive propaganda activities so that the U.S. people or lawmakers when confronted with content, whether lobbying or an op-ed, can make an informed assessment based on who the real party is behind it," explained Laufman. "If it's a foreign party, the American people should be able to take that into account and assigning whatever weight they want."

Trump’s ‘adolescent’ letter to Turkey stuns ex-White House adviser: ‘It is unprecedented’
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," David Gergen, a former White House adviser to four presidents, was astonished by President Donald Trump's letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an warning him "don't be a fool."
"I don't want to laugh about it because it's — this is a letter that was actually sent, at least, he says it was," said host Erin Burnett. "Have you ever seen anything like this?"
"Well, Erin, many presidents write tough letters, nasty letters, angry letters, frustrated letters. The normal presidents then put them in a jar in a file called 'burn before sending,'" said Gergen. "This had such an adolescent quality to it when I read it, I immediately called my researcher, and I said, see if this is fake."
