Police investigate shooting at Sparkman Walmart

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Huntsville Police confirm a shooting occurred at the Walmart on Sparkman Drive in Huntsville on Sunday afternoon.

Walmart released a statement about the incident Monday. "Keeping our customers and associates safe is among our top priorities, and this weekend’s incident had nothing to do with our store. Since this is an ongoing investigation, we must refer all questions to local law enforcement."

Police believe someone opened fire in the parking lot. Police are reviewing security camera footage from Walmart, as they continue to investigate exactly what happened, and why.

At this time they believe two or more people were involved in the shooting after an altercation.

Police say they also responded to the 2200 block of Memorial Parkway, just a mile down the road from the Walmart where they found a gun shot victim. Police tell WHNT News 19 the gun shot victim was at Walmart and involved in the altercation.

Right now police are still investigating, and currently have no suspects in custody.
