According to Wichita Police, a man in his 30s armed with a shotgun walked into the store. He approached two women inside, asking for a particular man.

Both were rushed to a Wichita hospital in critical condition.

Police believe the shooting was domestic-related. Officers say the suspect is a woman's ex-boyfriend and the victim is her current boyfriend.
