Two police officers were among those injured in a shooting at an eastern Arkansas Walmart on Monday, the Arkansas State Police tweeted.

USA Today and ABC News both report that one person was killed in Monday's shooting.

The shooting was reported Monday morning in Forrest City, about 85 miles east of Little Rock.

Forrest City Police dispatcher Chastity Boyd tells The Associated Press that three people have been shot inside the Walmart, but she didn't have information about the extent of their injuries.

She says she doesn't know whether a suspect has been detained. Authorities are working to secure the scene.

The ASP Criminal Investigation Division has been requested to conduct an investigation of the incident. Please stay away from the area if at all possible.
