Arrest report details events leading to fatal Walmart shooting
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A report from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department reveals the events that led up to the fatal early-morning shooting at a local Walmart on Friday.
The incident ended with Marc Hull being fatally shot by a police officer and Carrie Reed taken into custody.
Police said it began as Hull and Reed left the Orleans Casino at about 4 a.m. on Friday. Hull suggested the two go to Walmart to shop for a friend named Albert, and gave Reed a credit card. Reed took the card and put it in her purse, then left her purse in the car as the couple entered the Walmart at 3615 South Rainbow.
The two went directly to the electronics section, where police say they grabbed a video game and a Blu-Ray player among $4,075 in merchandise.
They proceeded to the cash register in the electronics section and attempted to use Albert Webster's credit card. When the transaction was rejected because the amount was too high, a Walmart employee called police, who responded to the scene.
When police arrived, employees directed them to Reed and Hull. Hull pulled out a handgun from his waste band and fired rounds, hitting one of the officers.
The remaining officers returned fire, shooting Hull to the ground.
Both men were taken to University Medical Center, where Hull was pronounced dead and the officer was expected to fully recover.
Carrie Reed was arrested and later admitted to police that she knew the credit card wasn't legitimate, and revealed that she had personal information on the identities of several people obtained through Turbotax.
She told police she knew the card wasn't Hull's, and she claimed she didn't know who Albert Webster was. She and Hull had checked the balance on the card while driving to Walmart to know how much money they could spend.
Police records indicate that Carrie Reed had prior arrests for burglary, theft, possession of controlled substance and obtaining property under false pretenses.
Police also checked the name on the credit card, Albert Webster, who's been dead since June of 2000.
Reed is now being held at the Clark County Detention Center as authorities continue to investigate.
She faces several charges, including burglary and fraudulent use of a credit card.
