Walmart Shooting Leaves 1 Dead In Arizona

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) — A man shot inside a Walmart store during a fight died, police in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler said Sunday night.

Detectives reviewing surveillance video report that two people got into a fight in the store, which ended in a shooting around 4 p.m. Sunday, Chandler police spokesman Joseph Favazzo said in a news release.

Favazzo told The Associated Press that the shooter remained at the store for a little while and then fled. He didn't make any other threats, the spokesman said.

Soon afterward, a family member called authorities to report his whereabouts. Police picked him up at the home and were questioning him. The man wasn't under arrest as of Sunday night and was cooperating with authorities, Favazzo said.

The victim had been taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but later died. His name hasn't been released.

An employee who answered the phone at the Walmart store said she wasn't allowed to talk about the shooting. An email sent to corporate headquarters wasn't immediately returned. Favazzo says a sign was posted saying the store would be closed until 7 a.m. Monday.
