Officials say two people are dead and a police officer and a suspect were shot at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi.

Both of the people who died this morning were Walmart employees. One person was found dead in the store and another found dead in the parking lot.

A massive police presence surrounded the store Tuesday morning. Walmart employees joined a prayer circle outside.

The company did not immediately respond to phone calls and information requests.
