BEND, OR -- Law enforcement converged on the Bend Walmart, early this morning, following a report of shots fired in the electronics department. Bend Police say at about 4 a.m., the man fired two rounds from a handgun at a case of higher-end electronics. They believe he was trying to disable the locks. He then took off through the emergency exit towards Badger Road.


Police locked down the store and nearby Shari’s restaurant and searched the area for the suspect. There were no injuries reported and the lockdowns were lifted about an hour later.


Police continue to search for the suspect. He's described as a skinny black male, 20- to 30-years-old, 6' tall; at the time of the incident he was wearing a multi-colored hoodie, beanie hat, jeans and black shoes.
