Four shot in argument at Walmart checkout near Philadelphia

"Four people were shot and several more injured when a gunman opened fire by the checkout of a Walmart during an argument with another customer.

Police say Keenan Jones, 30, fired at least 10 shots, some indiscriminately, as shoppers ran for cover during the fracas in the Philadelphia suburbs.

Officials say Mr Jones and his sister fled the supermarket before crashing into a police car.

Both were detained as Mr Jones fought with police, officers say.

He is charged with one count of attempted murder, 13 counts of aggravated assault and 19 counts of reckless endangerment, as well as gun charges.

His sister has not been named or charged."

Well, I know sometimes customers argued in supermarket lines, but damn.

At least it doesn't sound like anyone was badly injured. But geeze.

Philly isn't all that far north of me... Remind me to never go holiday shopping up there if (a few of) the locals can't even handle Walmart in August.

It's probably just an isolated case.
