PORT ORCHARD, Washington — A Washington state sheriff on Sunday said a shooting at a Walmart has left one person dead and two sheriff's deputies wounded.

Sheriff Steve Boyer said the two deputies along with another person are being taken to a hospital. He said the incident began at about 3:45 p.m. local time.

Few details are yet known including what may have sparked the shootings.

The conditions of the wounded were not immediately available.

A witness, Victor Meyers, told KOMO-TV that he heard what sounded like one shot, then six more in rapid succession.
