Chandler Walmart shooting suspect: I used gun in self-defense

A Chandler man suspected of fatally shooting another man at a local Walmart over the weekend is saying it was a matter of self-defense, according to police.

At 4 p.m., authorities were called to the store near Alma School and Warner roads, where they found Kyle Wayne Quadlin, 25, and Kriston Charles Belinte Chee, 36, Chandler Police spokesman Joe Favazzo said.

Quadlin and Belinte Chee had gotten into an argument that turned into a physical altercation at the store's service counter, according to Favazzo.

Quadlin is believed to have pulled out a gun and shot Belinte Chee after Quadlin said he was losing the fight and was "in fear for his life," Favazzo said. Quadlin then fled the store.

Video footage taken from the store shows a physical altercation between the two men before the shooting happen, according to Chandler police.

The pair did not know each other before this incident.

The investigation is ongoing and police have not booked Quadlin pending review by the County Attorney's Office.
