WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Two suspected shoplifters are arrested after one of them zapped a Wichita Wal-Mart employee with a Taser.

Police said that two Wal-Mart workers on Wednesday afternoon confronted a pair of women who tried to leave the store without paying for merchandise. At that point, one of the women fired an electroshock from the Taser.

The employee who was shocked was not seriously injured. The two workers were able to hold the suspects until police arrived and placed the women under arrest on suspicion of theft and battery.
