SAN ANTONIO -- A woman said she threatened to shoot a man who claimed to be a security guard.

She said he asked for identification to prove she was allowed to use handicap parking. It happened Wednesday around 1 p.m. at a busy shopping center near Loop 1604 and Highway 281.

"Vicky" requested we only use her first name and said she reported the incident to store management.

A spokesperson for Wal-Mart said the safety and security of its shoppers is paramount and said it's unknown if the man was really up to no good.

Wal-Mart uses a third party to handle its security issues, but said the security guards do not review handicap parking permits.

Vicky has a concealed handgun license and said when she became uncomfortable she threatened to shoot the man.

She said he rushed off and has not been located.

Be aware of your surroundings.  Trust your instincts.

Practice, Practice, Practice
