ADAMSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Police say a fight inside a Walmart in Alabama escalated into gunfire outside the store.

Adamsville police Chief Warren Cotton tells AL.com that two men have been arrested in the fight Saturday night. He says no one was injured after the altercation was taken to the parking lot and at least one gunshot was fired.

Cotton says one man had gone to his car, retrieved a gun and fired a shot. The chief says he does not know if the shot was fired in the air or at another person.

He says a police lieutenant shopping when the fight and shooting happened was able to help apprehend the men quickly.

Police have not provided the men’s names pending formal charges. Investigators are trying to determine what started the fight.
