The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Charlotte Fire Department and Medic responded to a Charlotte Walmart Monday night after someone reported hearing gunshots.

CMPD said officers at the scene located “evidence of a shooting” but no victims have been located. It happened at the Walmart at 8180 South Tryon Street. Police responded to the scene shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Steele Creek officers, the K-9 Unit and members of the SWAT team evacuated employees and customers out of the building while officers searched for any injured people. The entrance to the Walmart was also taped off.

Police said in a news conference on Tuesday that they believe both the suspect and the victim left the store after the shooting. According to police, they believe the shooting happened in one of the main aisles.

The shooting was not random and the victim and suspect knew each other, police said. Though, police said from the surveillance video it appeared the victim did not know the suspect was in the store.

Police are combing through a lot of videos at the moment and said they have not made contact with the suspect for the victim at this time.
