TALLASSEE, Ala. (AP) — A gunman crashed into a vehicle outside a Walmart store on Tuesday morning, opening fire and killing two men before taking his own life, authorities said.
Tallassee Mayor Johnny Hammock told news outlets the alleged shooter drove a car into another vehicle in the store parking lot, then opened fire.
Two women inside the vehicle were fatally wounded, he said, and the gunman turned the weapon on himself.
The violence appeared to be related to a domestic dispute and there was no broader danger, Police Chief Matthew Higgins told reporters.
"(We're) still trying to work out the details. It's still fresh," he said.
Authorities didn't immediately release the names or any other details about what happened. Photos shared on social media showed a light-colored SUV with cloth draped over the driver's window parked outside the store.
Tallassee is located about 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Montgomery.
