APU GOMESAt least three people are dead, including the gunman, after a Monday morning shooting at an Oklahoma Walmart, authorities confirmed. Officials received a call just before 10 a.m. about gunfire at the Walmart in Duncan, a town of about 22,000 an hour southwest of Oklahoma City. “We are aware of reports of a shooting at Walmart.

According to KOCO, the incident happened in the retailer’s parking lot and two men and one woman were reportedly found dead inside vehicles. NBC News is reporting the suspect is dead, though details are not immediately available.Duncan Public Schools officials confirmed that while all schools are on lockdown, the police department has given them the all clear and classes have resumed.“Duncan Public Schools is aware of the report of a shooting at Duncan Walmart.
