Two men shot each other and died after an argument inside an Alabama Walmart store, police said Thursday.

A statement from the Mobile Police Department said the two were arguing in a Walmart Neighborhood Market on Wednesday night and both pulled out guns.

Witnesses described people running for cover as multiple shots were fired, news outlets reported.

Both men were taken to a hospital where they died. Police identified the victims as Jaquess Thompson, 21, and Seantatis Kirksey, 44.

Alabama media reported one of the two men was in a wheelchair at the time of the shooting, but it was not clear which person it was.

No one else was injuried, police said. It was unclear what prompted the dispute.
