Shooting followed dispute in Walmart checkout lines in Cheltenham
Police have not described the nature of the argument at the checkout and it is not clear if any party to the dispute was injured. Police say the two fled the store in a Pontiac Grand Prix but later crashed into a police vehicle .

The clip begins with Taylor jumping over the reception desk and knocking what appear to be glass items off of tables.

Taylor told police that he is a religious missionary and former U.S. Marine, the Kampala Post reported. He later comes to the hotel lobby where he is seen hitting one of the employees and accusing them of hating Jesus.

"Fuck Uganda", Taylor yells at one point. He also berates the country, claiming he came "to help Uganda but Uganda hates Jesus". You obey what I say. You hate yourself. You hate me. Then he calls the staff "n***er bitch" adding, "You're not a human" as he smacks him in the back of the head, ranting about God and demanding his room be opened for him. Those claims have not been confirmed. After he was finally in custody, Taylor admitted to the attack but blamed it on his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and bipolar condition.
