A fatal shooting took place in the parking lot of a Walmart in Duncan, Oklahoma. According to reports, three people were shot and killed outside of the store, with the suspected gunman among the fatalities, Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said via KSWO.
An investigation is ongoing to see what led to the shooting.
“We can confirm a shooting in Walmart parking lot,” Dunan Police said in a statement. “One female and one male were deceased in (a) car and one male outside of the car. A handgun was found on scene.”
It appears the Oklahoma shooting took place in a Walmart parking lot. The @NRA fights in statehouses to pass laws that require businesses to allow firearms in their parking lots (this is the law in Oklahoma). In turn, business can only prohibit guns inside their buildings. https://t.co/g2n1roR9PW
