The two officers are in stable condition, and the suspect is dead.

The officers encountered the unidentified male suspect at the front of the store, just pas[t] the greeters’ area.

According to witnesses, the first officer entered the store and was fired upon immediately by the suspect, Tyler said.

The second officer, who was in close proximity, was also shot but was able to return fire. It is uncertain if the first officer discharged his weapon. Both were wearing bulletproof vests.

The Walmart Supercenter was open for business at the time but is now closed. The parking lot is cordoned off with yellow police tape.
