Three dead after Oklahoma Walmart shooting: police

Three people including a suspect are dead after a shooting at a Walmart in Duncan, Okla., police confirmed to The Duncan Banner

District Attorney Jason Hicks told the newspaper that the scene is contained and is no longer an active shooter situation. 

Police scanner calls at around 9:45 a.m. local time indicated a shooter at the Walmart, the Banner reported. 

Duncan Public Schools are also on lockdown, the newspaper added.

"One female and one male were deceased in [a] car and one male outside of the car. A handgun was found on the scene," Duncan police told USA Today in a statement.

Tera Mathis, a spokeswoman for the department, told USA Today the names, ages and other personal details about the victims were not available. 

Local police, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Stephens County Sheriff's Office are all participating in the investigation, Mathis told USA Today.

A spokesperson for the Duncan Police Department was not immediately available for comment to The Hill.

Oklahoma's new permit-less carry law, which went into effect earlier this month, reportedly allows most residents over 21 to carry concealed or unconcealed firearms without a license.
