      [Video: Gunman Sought In Walmart Robbery]


      ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando police found a car stolen by a crossdressing
      gunman who fired shots during a robbery at a Walmart.

      It happened at the Walmart Supercenter in Metrowest on Sunday. No one
      was hurt in the incident.

      Investigators said they found the car the gunman used to flee from the
      scene. It was a stolen 1997 green Honda Accord with Florida tags.

      Authorities said it happened on Sunday morning when a man in a dress
      fired gunshots inside the store. He was wearing a gray wig and a white
      dress.

      Once inside, the gunman tried to rob the Money Center, which is an
      area inside Walmart where customers can get financial advice.

      "McDonald's, Walmart, they were running into it -- not out of it. They
      wouldn't even listen. Everyone was panic-stricken," witness Janet
      Miller said.

      Customers described the scene as chaotic. Surveillance video showed
      images of the man inside the Money Center. Police will use the
      pictures to try to identify the gunman.
