ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - A dispute that began in the parking lot quickly spilled into the Enterprise Walmart where one person was fatally shot on Wednesday night.

The altercation escalated when both individuals drew weapons.

Multiple shots were fired in the popular department store, according to Enterprise Police Captain Billy Haglund.

He told News 4 that the shooting involved a handgun.

Investigators detained one suspect, though no charges were immediately filed.

The investigation is ongoing.

Customers were ordered to remain in the store, likely because police wanted to ensure the scene had been secured and to interview witnesses.

No other injuries have been reported.

The victim’s identity is pending.

Within a couple of hours, a strong police presence had thinned.

“I’ve haven’t seen this many officers at one place in a long time,” said WTVY News Director Stephen Crews as he traveled through Enterprise on his way home from Pike County.

Additional information will be released and this story will be updated.
