Authorities in Indiana say a gunman fired at police officers as he walked the aisles of a Walmart before being killed by law enforcement.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A gunman fired at police as he walked the aisles at a Walmart in Indiana before being killed by law enforcement, authorities said.

At least one person inside the store was wounded Thursday night by a gunman who was not immediately identified, Evansville Police Department Sgt. Anna Gray told WFIE-TV. The victim was taken to the hospital, the severity of the injuries is not yet known. None of the officers were injured, Gray said.

The victim was a Walmart employee, according to a statement from the company: “The entire Walmart family is shocked by the senseless violence that occurred at our Evansville store, and our hearts go out to our associate at this time,” the broadcaster said. “As we learn more, we will do everything we can to support our associates as they deal with this tragedy.”

The Associated Press has sent an email seeking comment to Walmart.

Evansville police and Vanderburgh County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an active shooter at the store around 10 p.m., Gray said.

“When officers came in they were trying to find the suspect and he was all over the store. He shot at the officers and left. So it wasn’t contained to just one area inside,” she said.

Several members of law enforcement returned fire during the standoff, and the gunman was killed, Gray said.

“At this point, we don’t know how many other people he shot,” Gray said, adding that there may be additional victims who escaped.

Authorities asked anyone who left the scene with injuries, no matter how minor, to contact emergency medical services.

The press conference was scheduled for Friday, the city’s police department said on Twitter.

Evansville, a city of about 116,000 on the Ohio River, is located 172 miles (276 kilometers) southwest of Indianapolis.
