  • Two shot dead and four injured at a Walmart distribution center after man opens fire

The ordeal was over in less than 45 minutes after officers shot the suspect in the upper chest, according to radio communications.

"To hear that much gunfire, it was frantic", said Lister, who unloads deliveries that are then repackaged and shipped to Walmart stores. His vehicle hit one person, Johnston said.

At a news conference, Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told reporters a motive for the attack had not been determined and identified the shooter only as a 31-year-old white male with a history at the distribution center.

Scott Thammakhanty, an employee at the facility's receiving center, told the Redding Record-Searchlight that he heard the shooter fire from the rifle.

According to officals, the shooting occurred on Saturday, June 27 around 3:30 p.m. when 31-year-old Louis Lane drove into the Walmart Distribution Center lobby with his auto and began randomly firing his weapon at those inside. Authorities reportedly shot the gunman. It caused a small fire that was not significant.

Six were taken to the nearby St. Elizabeth Community Hospital and treated for minor to moderate injuries. He said that the gunman looked familiar but that he did not know his identity. Lane had worked for the distribution center before he was sacked from the company in 2019 after failing to show up for his shift, the department wrote.

Vince Krick told Record Searchlight that the shooting started just as a group of workers was scheduled to start their shift.

"It was real insane, because, you know, you can't do nothing", Krick said.

Red Bluff is a city of about 14,000 people located around 130 miles (210 km) north of Sacramento, California.

Walmart said it was aware of the situation and was working with law enforcement authorities.

A heavy police presence was still at the scene as of 5pm local time Saturday and ensuring the building is clear. "We don't have any additional information to share at this time", Walmart spokesman Scott Pope told CNN.
