UPDATED – Walmart Statement on Black Friday Incident at Valley Stream Store
We expected a large crowd this morning and added additional internal security, additional third party security, additional store associates and we worked closely with the Nassau County Police. We also erected barricades. Despite all of our precautions, this unfortunate event occurred.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the deceased. We are continuing to work closely with local law enforcement and we are reaching out to those involved."
– Hank Mullany, Senior Vice President and President, Northeast Division, Walmart U.S.
