Police accused Walker of shooting at another man at about 4:35 p.m. Saturday June 15, 2019 during an altercation that erupted during a custody exchange of a child near the north end of Walmart’s parking lot near Golf and Algonquin roads. An exchange of gunfire ensued and several customer or employe vehicles parked in the lot were struck by bullets.

A 24-year-old male victim returned fire, but Rolling Meadows Police Department didn’t charge him because they determined he fired back in self-defense. He suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen, and was transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge with a wound and was stabilized. The long-term effects of the injury were not released publicly.

The role of a third male who was seen handcuffed and detained by police after the shootout is unknown. He was apparently detained for investigation and was not a suspect.
