SPRINGFIELD, MO. (THECOUNT) — Police have identified Dmitriy N. Andreychenko as the man arrested after allegedly toting a loaded rifle while donning tactical gear inside a southwest Springfield Walmart store on Thursday.

Andreychenko, 20, was booked into the jail on suspicion of first-degree making a terrorist threat.

Police say Andreychenko was arrested Thursday after he showed up at a Springfield Walmart store with a loaded rifle while wearing a bulletproof vest. The man had more than 100 rounds of ammo at the ready, according to police.

“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that,” Springfield Police Department Lt. Mike Lucas said of the 20-year-old suspect Thursday evening.

Springfield Police Department say the incident occurred at after 4 p.m. Thursday at the Walmart Neighborhood Market, located at, 3150 West Republic Road, in Springfield, MO.

Lucas said the man showed up to the business with body armor and military-style clothing and then walked inside carrying a “tactical rifle” and another gun.

As shoppers were panicking and fleeing the store, Lucas said the man was taking video on his phone and making comments to people while pushing a shopping cart.

Lucas said the suspect then walked out of the store, where an off-duty firefighter held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived moments later.

Police are still working to determine the suspect’s motives and whether or not he intended to shoot anyone.

Lucas said the man had more than 100 rounds of ammo.

Lucas said Springfield police officers arrived on scene in 3 minutes after the initial 911 call on Thursday. He said the scene was initially chaotic.

Lucas described the suspect as “pretty stoic” during the initial police contact. He said officers would be interviewing the suspect at the jail on Thursday to try to learn more about his motivations.

“His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business here,” Lucas said. “In fact, he’s lucky he’s alive still, to be honest,” reports News-Leader.

A fire marshal was called out to the scene on Thursday to inspect the suspect’s car, a gray Mazda sedan that was left in the parking lot. Lucas said that was to ensure there were no bombs on the vehicle.

The suspect was not immediately identified.

MA Man Instant Regret After Flaming Gas Can In Above Ground Pool Proves Bad Idea

SPRINGFIELD, MA. (THECOUNT) — A Springfield man is mourning the death of his above ground pool after accidentally torching it with a flaming gas can.

Emergency Crews were called to the Castle Street neighborhood on reports of a pool fire late Monday afternoon after the homeowner was attempting to light a fire pit with a gas can, and a flash fire occurred.

The quick thinking, but somehow misguided homeowner threw the flaming gas can in his pool, where it floated and continued to burn. The flames came into contact with the vinyl siding of the pool and burned right though releasing a wall of water, and the still burning island of a gas can.

Springfield fire officials told 22News they were called to 85 Castle St., where they found a pool fire that required the use of firefighter’s foam to extinguish it shortly before 5 p.m., reports WWLP.

Fire Department spokesman Dennis Leger said a man was using gasoline to light a fire pit to burn yardsticks and leaves when the fire flashed and caught his gas can on fire.

The man then threw the gas can into the pool with its content on fire, causing it to spread a liquid fire on the top of the water in a half-filled pool.

No injuries are being reported at this time.
