Video Shows Fired Walmart Employee's Wrestle Gun From Shoplifter

Two Vids. News Clip & Surveillance Video

Four Walmart employees took down an armed shoplifter last January, but the retail giant fired the workers for doing what they thought was right.

It took repeated government records requests — four of them — to obtain the video from Layton City. The former Walmart employees involved in the altercation saw the video for the first time Thursday.

Video of the Jan. 13 incident begins with the employees leading Trent Allen Longton into a security office. They said they saw him stuff a notepad computer under his clothes, and the video shows him take it out and set it on the desk.

But not long after he pulled out the laptop, Longton went for a gun in his pocket and made a move for the door.

"Time stopped. I didn't know what to do," said Gabe Stewart, one of the Walmart employees involved.The shoplifter jammed the gun into Stewart's back.
