A gunman was shot and taken into custody after wounding at least four people in and around a North Carolina Walmart on Friday.

Earlier in the day, witness had told the station that a man with a rifle and a bulletproof vest had shot an insurance adjuster at Kellum Law Firm. Additional shootings were later reported at a nearby Walmart.
