CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Shoppers and employees at a University City Walmart had quite a surprise Monday afternoon after a deer wandered into the store -- and it was all caught on video.

A customer at the store on North Tryon Street sent Channel 9 video of what looks like a doe in the aisles of the store.
People were frantically trying to subdue the animal, eventually pinning it down.
Edmond Ratcliffe told Channel 9 it’s not what he expected to see while doing his last-minute Christmas shopping.
“It was kind of a stay out of the way situation because I know if I'm in the way, it could be trouble,” he said.
Animal Control was called to the store to remove the deer. It was unclear what happened to the animal after that.
