Police in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler say a man shot inside a Wal-Mart store during a fight has died.

Chandler police spokesman Joseph Favazzo says that detectives reviewing surveillance video report that two people got into a fight, ending in a shooting around 4 p.m. Sunday.

Favazzo says the shooter fled and soon afterward, a family member called authorities to report his whereabouts. Police picked him up at a home and are questioning him. Favazzo says he's not under arrest at this time and is cooperating.

The victim had been taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but later died. His name hasn't been released.

An employee who answered the phone at the Wal-Mart store said she wasn't allowed to talk about the shooting. Favazzo says a sign was posted saying the store would be closed until 7 a.m. Monday.
