Phillips said there were no other suspects and officials would complete search warrants.

The police chief said the incident began with a man colliding with a woman he had been in a long-term relationship with. He said the man appears to have shot near Walmart.

Police said he shot another man who tried to escape in an SUV but crashed. He died of his injuries.

Police said the woman was injured, but it is unclear how she was injured.

The 69 News team at the scene said they saw an SUV impregnated with bullets.

“Tragically, someone else could have been hurt,” Phillips said. “We have kids coming in and out of all these stores all the time.”

Authorities have not yet named the suspect.

Rich Fleming was working in the back of Walmart when he heard an act of violence. He said at first he didn’t think anything of it.

“But then customers started rushing to the back of the store to try to keep everyone safe,” Fleming said.
