At least nine people were wounded—three of them fatally—in shootings during Black Friday shopping across the US. A man in a Walmart parking in San Antonio, Texas, tried to intervene Friday when he saw another man punching a woman in the head, Reuters reports. Police say the other man shot the Good Samaritan in the neck, killing him. A woman with the Good Samaritan was wounded by shrapnel, and a female shopper was in critical condition after catching a stray bullet. "You have to give credit to the man for being willing to intervene," the police chief says. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, an argument inside a mall spilled into the parking lot, where one person was shot in the leg and another in the arm, according to WRCB. Police say at least one victim is a gang member.
