The police investigation into a shooting at Walmart revealed that the victim’s actions were “heroic and selfless.”
Rita Carico, 57, of Galax, who was shot in the face and chest in the dairy section of Walmart on the night of May 1, has been released from Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and expects to make a full recovery, according to the Galax Police Department.
Investigators had been waiting for Carico to recover before interviewing her about the shooting. Police were able to talk to her last week.
