2 dead, 4 injured after gunman rams car & opens fire at Walmart warehouse in California

2 dead, 4 injured after gunman rams car & opens fire at Walmart warehouse in California
Authorities have neutralized an armed suspect who crashed his vehicle into a Walmart distribution center near Red Bluff, California and opened fire on employees, killing and injuring multiple people.

The incident happened around 3:30pm during a shift change at the facility. The vehicle reportedly circled the parking lot several times before the suspect crashed it into the building.

The gunman, allegedly armed with an 'AR-type' semi-automatic weapon, then fired several dozen rounds as panicked employees ran for their lives. 

“It went on and on — I don’t even know how many times he fired,” Scott Thammakhanty, an employee at the facility, told AP.

The attacker was confronted and “shot in the chest” by police officers around 15 minutes later. He underwent surgery, but his condition remains unclear.

The local hospital confirmed at least two fatalities. Four more people were injured in the incident, but were said to be in fair condition.

The attacker’s motives remain unclear and details of the incident remain scarce as authorities conduct an investigation.
