Surveillance Video Shows Fatal Walmart Gun Fight In Port Orchard

KIROTV.COM - New video released by the State Patrol shows a fatal gunfight at the Port Orchard Walmart in January that left two people, including the gunman, dead and two deputies wounded.

Surveillance videos captured the last moments of the encounter as Anthony Martinez ran from deputies Andrew Edje and John Stacy. Police radio broadcasts obtained by KIRO 7 revealed the panic of the moment.

"We have two officers down and a suspect down! We need backup now!" Deputy Krista McDonald is heard yelling. Deputies went to the Walmart on Jan. 23 after an acquaintance of Martinez's called 911 and said he was with an underage girl, Astrid Valdivia, 13.

As deputies were taking Martinez into custody, he pulled a pistol and ran away. The video shows Martinez shooting as he runs. Stacy goes down first, falling behind a wall out of view, then Edje falls.

As he runs, Martinez is shot in the leg by McDonald, obscured in the video by a wall, and falls to the ground. Shortly thereafter, Martinez raises his weapon at Valdivia and fatally shoots the teenager.

Seconds later, Martinez places the gun to his chest and shoots himself in the heart. The video, along with ballistics tests and deputies accounts, helped the Washington State Patrol determine what happened during the 18-second gun battle.

"You get a pretty solid picture of a very tragic murder/suicide," state patrol spokesman Bob Calkins said. Stacy is fully recovered and back on patrol.McDonald has also returned to duty.

Edje is off duty, undergoing rehabilitation for his injuries.
