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.

So-called moderate Georgia senator brags she’s as conservative as a pagan barbarian who killed his own brother to rule
Sen. Kelly Loeffler's (R-GA) new campaign ad brags that she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," with an actor grunting off a "list" of things he would do.
It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.
Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."
HHS secretary says all ‘Warp Speed’ vaccines will have ‘liability protection’ from lawsuits
Pharmaceutical companies that produce COVID-19 vaccines through the federal government's "Warp Speed" program will automatically have liability protection, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar said on Monday.
Azar was asked about the progress of COVID-19 vaccine trials during an interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney.
"We now have three vaccines in phase three clinical trials here in the United States, which is just unprecedented -- the speed that we have been able to go given President Trump's support of Operation Warp Speed," Azar explained. "These are some of the largest clinical trials of vaccines in history."
NPR’s Nina Totenberg blows up Trump’s lie about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish
President Donald Trump began his week speculating that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's family was lying when they said that her dying wish was not to have her seat filled until the next president is elected.
"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," Trump told "Fox & Friends" hosts. "I would be more inclined to the second ... But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or Shifty Schiff."
NPR’s Nina Totenberg, who visited with the late justice before she died, revealed that it was said and that it wasn't just her granddaughter Clara in the room who heard it.
