Shots fired incident at Walmart near 103rd and Silver Spring, Milwaukee
Milwaukee police say the shooting is the result of an argument. They are seeking an unknown suspect.
William Gladney said store leaders sounded an alarm – and then asked everyone to leave when police gave the all-clear.
Gladney said in the panic, one woman he was near dropped her purse – and had to go back inside later to find it.
"They hit my headlight. They hit another vehicle sitting right next to mine," Gladney said.
There were as many as 25 evidence markers on the pavement. The fire department came later – and cleaned up blood left on the parking lot.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS or P3 Tips App to remain anonymous.
It is unclear when Walmart will reopen.
The parking lot is filled with security cameras. A Walmart spokesman tells FOX6 News the store is assisting with the investigation.
