2 charged after Walmart shoppers shot with blowgun
Two Tomball teenagers are facing charges after one allegedly shot shoppers with a blowgun at Walmart.
Two shoppers were hit with metal darts on the morning of Jan. 16 at a Walmart store on Tomball Parkway near Spring Cypress Road.
According to court documents, surveillance video from the store shows a 10-year-old boy getting shot with a dart on the back of his upper right arm as he walked into the store with his mother.
Five minutes later, 72-year-old Eva Cook was shot with a dart in her upper right shoulder blade as she rode a motorized scooter to her car in the parking lot.
“It fell out of my shoulder, it was in my clothes and it fell out. I turned around and saw this thing out of my shoulder,” Cook said. “I shop there all the time, and was just minding my own business and was just in shock.”
According to court documents, when investigators reviewed the surveillance video, they saw a white Nissan extended cab truck near each victim when they were shot. Investigators said they were able to trace that truck to 18-year-old Clay Vittrup.
Investigators said when they talked to Vittrup, he eventually admitted that his backseat passenger, Cameron James Perry, rolled down the window and shot a blowgun at people at Walmart Jan. 16.
Perry, 18, denied shooting a blowgun at shoppers when investigators interviewed him.
Both Perry and Vittrup face aggravated assault charges.
As for injuries, both the boy and Cook are expected to be OK. No one went to the hospital.
