A mother had just turned away when a stranger pulled her 2-year-old daughter out of their shopping cart.
Witnesses called 9-1-1 as the man held a knife to the child. One shopper blocked the man with his cart until police arrived.
Police tried to negotiate, but the man suddenly started a countdown. That's when one officer distracted him, while another fired a single deadly shot.
The incident was shown on surveillance video.
The little girl was not physically harmed.
