Police in South Fulton are trying to identify three shoppers who they believe are connected to a deadly shooting at a Walmart.

Investigators are looking for a man and two women in connection with the homicide, police spokesman Lt. Jubal Rogers said. The department released photos of the trio Monday.

The shooting happened outside the store in the 6100 block of Old National Highway on Feb. 26, AJC.com previously reported. During an altercation in the parking lot about 1:30 p.m., one man pulled a gun and fired several shots at another man, striking him in the chest, Rogers said.

After being shot, the victim ran inside the store for help, police said. He was taken to the hospital, where he died. Authorities are still searching for the shooter.

At least two bullets struck the windshield of a car parked in front of the store, Channel 2 Action News reported.

“We’re aware of the situation and are working closely with police as they conduct their investigation,” a Walmart official said in a statement.

Police have not said how the shoppers are related to the homicide investigation.

Anyone with information about the shoppers or the shooting is asked to contact South Fulton police.

Tipsters can remain anonymous, and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website.
