Multiple callers to our traffic station AM730 earlier reported it was a shooting at the Wal-Mart in Queensborough landing around noon.

“Just letting you know over in Queensborough, at the Walmart area, there has been a shooting. Yeah, there is all kinds of police cars, fire, ambulance, they have it roped off.”
