Man shot dead at Wal-Mart
Shopper saw him stabbing ex-wife in deli

A Wal-Mart employee is recovering from stab wounds while her ex-husband is dead from gunshot wounds after the couple fought inside the Southeast Heights store.

While working in the deli, Joyce Cordoba, 46, was approached by Felix Vigil around 5 p.m. Thursday, Albuquerque police spokeswoman Trish Hoffman said this morning.

The divorced couple have a history of domestic violence, Hoffman said.

Vigil, 54, jumped over the deli counter and began to stab Cordoba, Hoffman said.

Due Moore, a customer who witnessed the stabbing, pulled out a gun a shot Vigil dead, Hoffman said.

Moore, 72, had a concealed arms permit and was an unpaid volunteer with the Police Department's cold case unit, Hoffman said.

Moore was taken into custody Thursday, questioned and released, she said.

"It looks like it will be justified," Hoffman said.

Cordoba was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital with multiple stab wounds and is in serious but stable condition, Hoffman said.

Sharon Weber, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, said "our first and foremost concern is for our associates."

The store at 301 San Mateo Blvd. S.E., reopened a little after 7 a.m. today, Weber said.

She said the company's thoughts and prayers are with Cordoba and that counseling is available.

Weber said the shooting and stabbing are being looked at as an isolated incident.

so, back to the topic of this thread...

what I don't get is Walmart does not allow firearm inside their store, so doesn't that make Mr. Moore violate the store policy.

be it he saved the womans' life, and I'm an "anti-WalMart when I can, to keep other business open" kind of guy, I just wondering the legality of the issue.
