Man fatally shoots woman at Ocala Walmart

He has a self-inflicted gunshot wound but is alive and being taken to a hospital.

According to police, the incident began as an apparent domestic incident in the garden section of an Ocala Walmart. The woman screamed for help during the altercation, leading a store clerk to intervene and call 911. Johnson then shot her.

Marion County officials say this shooting is the 12th domestic homicide this year.

They found him about two hours later at a home down the road with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head - he is not expected to survive.

Police say no one else was injured. He was been taken to the hospital as well.

According to Ocala police, the gunman and victim knew each other. The Ocala Police Department confirmed that the woman had died.

Ocala Fire Rescue says they treated three people who suffered injuries in the chaos of trying to escape the store.

The victim and the gunman dated for about nine months but were now not a couple, according to Scotty Ballard.

Ballard told the newspaper that the pair had been arguing all day Saturday because he wanted to get back together and she did not. Ballard said he was an aisle away when the shooting took place.

Colleen Wade said she was shopping inside the store, walking toward the garden area, when she heard a crashing sound.

Investigators are working to speak with the victim's family about the shooting, before releasing her name.

A Florida man says the woman shot in a Walmart store was killed by her ex-boyfriend.
