TALLASSEE, Ala. (AP) — Three people are dead after a shooting outside a Walmart store in Alabama.

Tallassee Mayor Johnny Hammock tells news outlets the alleged shooter crashed a car into a vehicle in the store parking lot, then opened fire. He says two women inside the vehicle were fatally wounded.
