The Walmart on Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge will be closed until 6 a.m. Wednesday according to a sign posted on the store's windows.
The store's normal hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. seven days a week.
A man was injured while caught in the middle of gunfire between two shoppers at the Walmart Tuesday morning.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said that the two patrons exchanged gunfire while standing in the store's customer service line. The third man, who was at the store to purchase a lunchbox for his child, was hit multiple times in the altercation.
One person was arrested and another was cited after an altercation at a Walmart in Baton Rouge late Tuesday morning that caused panic inside the store and prompted law enforcement to swarn the area after initial reports of a possible active shooter situation, which were later debunked.
He was taken to Baton Rouge General Medical Center in a private vehicle and is currently in fair condition, according to hospital spokeswoman Katie Johnston.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff's officials said Tuesday afternoon that information is still being gathered regarding the incident.
