A person was shot Friday at a Walmart in North Carolina and authorities were trying to find the suspected gunman.

Lumberton police officers responded to the large retail store just before 11:30 a.m. amid reports of gunfire inside. When officers arrived, the store was being evacuated, but they did not find the shooter and no one was injured.

Surveillance video shows the shooter fleeing the store as it was being evacuated, police said.

That footage has not been released.

Within minutes of being alerted to the shooting, authorities were told someone with a gunshot wound arrived at the University of North Carolina Southeastern Health Hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

“This appears to be an isolated incident between two people who know each other,” the police department said. “The suspect has been identified and investigators are trying to locate him at this time.”

This shooting comes just days after a Walmart employee killed six people inside a Chesapeake, Virginia store, injured several more, and took his own life.

The alleged gunman in that case, Andre Bing, is believed to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. In a manifesto, Bing allegedly claimed that he “was harassed by idiots with little intelligence and lack of wisdom.”

He legally purchased the .9mm handgun at a local store the morning of the shooting and had no criminal record, police said Friday.
