    Wal-Mart shooting near Seattle

    Here we go again......

    PORT ORCHARD, Wash. -- Two people were killed and two sheriff's deputies were injured in a shooting outside the entrance of a Port Orchard Walmart on Sunday afternoon, the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said.

    The dead include the suspect and a woman believed to be a teenager, Deputy Scott Wilson of the Sheriff's Office told reporters. The young woman died after being taken to a Tacoma hospital.

    The two deputies suffered injuries that are not life-threatening, Wilson said, and are being treated at a Tacoma hospital.

    Both deputies were shot in the torso, said Mark Fulghum of the Tacoma Police Department. He said the two are listed in satisfactory condition and would stay at the hospital overnight.

    The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear.

    It happened at about 3:45 p.m. after deputies received a numerous calls, including a call from a bystander who was concerned about a man walking around with a gun at the store in Port Orchard, Wilson said.

    Wilson said the man ran and started shooting when three deputies tried to talk to him. The deputies, including the two who were wounded, returned fire.

    The injured deputies have five to 10 years of experience in Kitsap County, he said.

    Two lit candles and an American flag were set outside Tacoma General Hospital to honor the wounded deputies, said KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Alison Grande.

    Wilson said he doesn't know whether the two people who were killed knew each other.

    Trooper Krista D. Hedstrom told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that the Washington State Patrol will investigate the shooting.

    A customer inside the store at the time said he heard two shots.

    "It's not clear who or what happened exactly, but the store is on lockdown right now," Mike Lambert told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News anchor Ming Laven by phone. "No one is allowed in or out until further notice by police."

    "Everyone's just waiting to get out and see what happened. A bunch of people are just waiting at the front doors," he said.

    Walmart issued a statement that read: "This is a tragic incident. We stand ready to assist police with their investigation."

    What is unique about Seattle that they have more/severe reported shooting incidents? Is it just the reporting?
    Yoda, I am, yes.
