RCMP say a man has died in hospital after a shooting Friday evening at a Walmart in Red Deer, Alta.

They say the 69-year old man was shot near the entrance of the store in the city’s south end at around 6:45 p.m. and had been rushed to hospital in grave condition.

Police say in a news release “preliminary information suggests that this was a targeted shooting,” and there is no further danger to the general public.

They also confirm there were no other injuries.

RCMP Const. Shelley Nasheim told The Canadian Press police were looking for two vehicles of interest that were spotted leaving the scene, but offered no further suspect information as investigators continued trying to reach out to possible witnesses.

The name of the deceased was not immediately released.
