Two men are dead after an argument led to a shootout at a Walmart store in Mobile.

Police say two people got into a dispute at a Walmart Neighborhood Market on Wednesday night and both pulled out guns. Each opened fire and shot the other. A witness said people ran through the store as multiple shots rang out.

Both men were taken to a hospital where they died. Police identify them as 21-year-old Jaquess Thompson and 44-year-old Seantatis Kirksey.

It’s unclear what prompted the dispute.
