"An altercation between an employee of Walmart and another gentleman that was on the property dropping off an employee, and during the altercation, one of the people did receive several gunshots and was pronounced dead at the scene," Lieutenant Detective Over Investigation Stacey Sapp said.
Police say Walmart employee Jaron Darrisaw killed 28-year-old Kristopher Oneal. That's the sixth homicide in the city this year compared two in 2019 according to Sapp.
"If you get yourself out of the situation, there won't be a situation," Sapp said
