Walmart Shooting: 2 Shots Outside Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania Store


WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. (WPVI) – A shooting outside a Walmart in the Lehigh Valley injured two people Friday night, police said.

The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. in the 2600 block of MacArthur Road in Whitehall Township.

Police said two people were shot while outside the store.

Witnesses at the scene said the incident happened very suddenly.

“As I walk in, I hear a ‘boom boom’. I thought it was a car exhaust or something,” said Qusai Muhasen from New Jersey.

Apparently, Walmart never closed despite the large police presence.

“As we were pulling into the parking lot, we saw one of the Whitehall police cars fly up the front entrance near TJ Maxx and then head towards Walmart,” said Scott Dias of Upper Macungie. “In seconds, we saw more than five or six police cars appear.”

There is no information on the condition of the shooting victims.

Police have not released any details about a suspect or motive.

This story has been updated to show that the shooting occurred outside of Walmart.
