Police are asking for any witnesses to the shooting, Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford told reporters.

In August, a gunman killed 22 people in a busy Walmart in El Paso – a city in Texas near the border with Mexico. The shooter allegedly told police he was targeting «Mexicans» in the shooting.

In early September, Walmart said it would stop selling ammunition and hand guns and also asked customers to not carry guns inside the store, even where state law allowed it.
