Update: Armed man in Missouri Walmart charged with making terrorist threat



Dmitriy Nickoayvich Andreychenko, was the 20-year-old man has been arrested yesterday evening for making a terrorist threat after wielding an assault rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition while filming himself entering a Missouri Walmart on Thursday afternoon.

Six months ago Andreychenko posted that he hates Walmart’s store policy of only selling firearms to those 21 and over.

In a February Facebook status update Andreychenko wrote: ‘It’s official. I hate Walmart. Apparently, they won’t sell Rifle and shotgun ammo if your {sic] under 21. “New policy” However I can walk into the store with a loaded .40 and nobody says anything. What a joke.’

Panicked shoppers were sent fleeing when the man entered the store wearing a bulletproof vest and military-style clothing in Springfield, before he was stopped by a hero firefighter who held him at gunpoint.

After the store manager pulled the fire alarm, the suspect escaped out of an emergency exit where the armed off-duty firefighter stopped him until police arrived.

Police later arrested an ‘armed individual’, a white male later named as Andreychenko, and say no shots were fired. Booking details listed it as a 1st degree terrorist threat.

Cops told KSPR that he was filming himself while carrying the loaded rifle, another gun and ammunition and was making comments to shoppers as they fled the ‘chaotic’ scene.

Julie Belew, from Springfield, told the Springfield News-Leader that she was just about to leave her car when she heard a commotion and heard a police officer telling the suspect to ‘hold it’ as he walked down a hill.

She said she heard someone say: ‘Why are you walking around in a tactical jacket carrying a rifle?’

‘He did not seem surprised. He did not seem angry. He looked like he had accomplished whatever he wanted to accomplish,’ she told the publication.

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

The suspect studied to be an EMT at Ozarks Technical Community College and refers to himself as a ‘part-time dispatcher, full-time farmer’ in one Instagram caption. An online profile says he started working at cargo company Roadway Express LLC in 2018.

He is married and he and his wife are expecting their first child in 2020.
