BELLMEAD, Texas - A shooting was caught on camera outside of a Walmart in McLennan County Friday afternoon.

Andre Dawson, 27, was in the line of fire after a woman shot at him when he allegedly tried to steal the purse of a different woman.

Witnesses recorded the incident from across the street.

In the video, you can see the woman pointing a pistol at Dawson who was struggling with a man. When he got away, the woman shot at the suspect.

Police said Dawson tripped and was not hit. He took off running but was tackled by a group of men seconds later. The woman then walked away from the scene, gun in hand.

Dawson was later arrested for robbery, police said. The woman whose purse he was allegedly trying to steal was not hurt nor was the woman who shot at the suspect.

However, officers are looking for the woman with the gun and urge anyone with information on her whereabouts to call police.
