FLASH: Three Killed In Shooting At Oklahoma Walmart
Three people have been killed in a shooting outside a Walmart store in Oklahoma, including the assailant, police said, the latest in a string of deadly gun attacks at the popular supermarket chain.
Danny Ford, the police chief in the US town of Duncan, said the shooting, an apparent domestic dispute took place shortly before 10:00 am on Monday (local time) in a parking lot in front of the store.
"We have three individuals that are deceased. We have two white males and a white female. Two of the victims are inside the vehicle, one is outside the vehicle," Mr Ford said.
A handgun was also found at the scene, police added.
Witnesses told local news channels that the shooter approached his victims while they were inside the vehicle, opening fire on them.
He then turned his weapon on himself when a fourth man reportedly pulled out a firearm and challenged the shooter, they said.
Family members at the scene said the shooting was a domestic dispute between a husband and his wife, a local Fox News affiliate reported.
A gunman killed 22 people in a Walmart store in August in El Paso, Texas, while another Walmart store in Mississippi was the scene of a shooting in late July when a disgruntled employee killed two co-workers and wounded a police officer.
