2 shot at Florida Walmart over parking space, police say

Authorities believe a disagreement over a parking space led to two people being shot and wounded outside a Walmart in Tallahassee, Fla.

Police say officers responded to the shooting shortly after noon on Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. A man and a woman -- discovered at the store's outdoor garden center -- were taken to a nearby hospital with wounds that were not considered life-threatening. They were expected to make a full recovery.

Shopper Kollet Probst told the Tallahassee Democrat she was waiting in the customer service department when she saw a crowd of people running into the store and heard the sound of gunshots.

"Everybody started trying to find a place to hide," she told the paper, adding that other shoppers huddled into a restroom and tried to call 911.

No arrests were immediately made, but police were searching for a dark green Toyota Camry in connection with the case. The motive for the shooting has not been released.
