Witnesses told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty that they attempted to help the man who was shot.

“It is kind of scary. I frequently shop in this area. I live in this area, so it is kind of scary to see this happening here,” witness Donna Hatcher said.

“I just grabbed my phone when I realized that’s what I heard and dialed 911 and ran to the bathroom and hid,” witness Christan Cook said.

It is unclear what led up to this shooting, however, no charges have been filed.
