TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a Walgreens employee with a concealed-carry license fatally shot an armed man after an argument that began at the photo counter.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Brandon Watkins says the man who died Wednesday was 52-year-old William Hurley. Watkins says Hurley pulled a gun, jumped behind the photo counter to take photos from a clerk and then climbed back over the counter.
Watkins says that while other employees tried to call police, a 28-year-old Walgreens employee shot and killed the man.
That employee wasn’t injured, and police say he hasn’t been arrested. Another Walgreens employee and a customer were both struck by gunfire and hospitalized. Watkins says both are expected to survive.
Walgreens said in a statement that it is cooperating with the investigation into the shooting.
