A transient from western Arkansas was indicted last Thursday after police say he swung a hatchet at shoppers inside a Marshall Walmart in December.

Christopher Lynn Hamilton, 27, of Crawford, AR, was indicted by a Harrison County grand jury on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Marshall police said just before 6 a.m. on Sunday, December 8, dispatchers in Marshall received a report that a man, later identified as 27-year-old  Hamilton,  was inside Walmart on E. End Boulevard North attacking customers with a hatchet.

When law enforcement arrived, they found several people with injuries from the attack.

Hamilton fled the scene into a wooded area and near the store where he was located at 7:30 a.m. by authorities.
