Toddler held hostage at OK Walmart store

Posted: Updated:

 

(CNN) - A man takes a toddler hostage inside a Walmart.

The whole thing is caught on tape. It happened last week at store in Oklahoma. 


The man simply walked up to the shopping cart while the woman's back was turned and grabbed the two-year-old girl and held a knife to her throat. 

Police say they had no choice but to shoot the man dead when he started a countdown to hurt the girl. 

The little girl was not hurt. She was returned to her mother shortly after the terrifying ordeal.
