Playing Why It Appears So Much Crime Happens at Walmart

Is Walmart a hot bed for crime?

After a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, was the site of a mass shooting that claimed 22 lives, questions are being raised about why crime can be so rampant at the retail giant in some places. At one location in Massachusetts, police say they've received thousands of calls in the past four years.

The massacre in El Paso, followed by another in Dayton, Ohio, just hours later, is striking fear into the hearts of Americans, with gun sales up at one shop called Tactical Hunter. What the store's owner told Inside Edition. 

In Dayton, a trauma team that mobilized to treat victims of that shooting, which killed nine, described the injuries sustained from the .223-caliber high-capacity rifle used by the gunman to Inside Edition. Here's how to treat a wound from such a weapon. 

And what women who knew the Dayton shooter, Connor Betts, had to say about him.
