Breaking News Update on Monday's Walmart Officer Involved Shooting


San Angelo's Northside Wal-mart re-opened just before ten Monday night; and 42-year-old Charles D. Welborn remains in the hospital after being shot by police.

The shooting followed an aggravated robbery at the Wal-mart on West 28th Street at about 2:40 Monday afternoon. The store and parking lot were closed off for several hours as police collected evidence, but re-opened late Monday evening.

About a dozen employees waited from across the street for the store to re-open.

Police say Welborn broke into a gun display case in the store, and took a rifle; then ran out after an employee took the rifle away from him.

Police shot Welborn in the parking lot after they say he charged at them with a broken bottle after refusing orders; medics transported him to Shannon Medical Center.
