Surveillance cameras recorded the suspect, Sammie Wallace, who allegedly took a 2-year-old girl from a mother’s shopping cart and held a knife to the child’s stomach.

After negotiations with Wallace failed and the situation grew intense, one officer distracted the suspect, while another shot the Wallace point-blank.

The toddler was uninjured and safely returned to her mother, who was waiting for her at the front of the store.
