Several Injured in Shooting at a Walmart in Philadelphia

CHELTENHAM, Pa. – At least five people were injured in a shooting at a Walmart on the outskirts of Philadelphia on Tuesday, police said.

The shooting began shortly after 6:00 pm local time, Cheltenham Township police chief John Frye said.

“At about seven after six o’clock, one of our officers in the area observed a large number of people running from the Walmart. Turns out there was a shooting inside,” Frye told reporters.

The police chief said that two suspects, one male and one female, fled the scene in a gold-color car. They were believed to be siblings.

They were apprehended “a short time later” when they “crashed into the rear of a Philadelphia police car and were taken into custody,” Frye said.

“One of the victims was shot three times, (another) shot four times. We have another gunshot victim at the hospital. So upwards of at least 10 shots that we can determine,” he added.

In addition to those who were shot, a pregnant woman needed medical attention after falling during the shooting, while one other person suffered cuts from broken glass.

The shooting occurred after “words were exchanged” during an altercation at the cash register, Frye said.
