An male employee inside a packed New Orleans Walmart was shot dead Monday night, prompting a major police presence, a report said.
Although details were sketchy, police did say an arrest was made after the victim was shot in the chest in a store aisle in Gentilly, NOLA.com reported. No identities have been released.
Police Chief Shaun Ferguson said the investigation is in its early stages.
“This is a very brazen incident in which an individual walked into a business this time of the evening with hundreds of customers inside of this business armed with a weapon and willing to cause someone harm,” Ferguson said, NOLA.com reported.
“It had me nervous. You hear about this happening, but when you experience this, it’s an entirely different thing,” she said.
