According to Channel 2, witnesses said the shooter and the victim argued about a parking space before the gunfire erupted. A single shot was fired, police said.

The scene was so chaotic, shoppers told the news station that families became separated. Some believed there was an active shooter situation, Channel 2 reported.

“People were missing their family members,” witness Robin Reynolds said. “Some kids were crying ‘cause they didn't know where their dad was at.”

The shooting is still under investigation.
