Police officials in Duncan, Okla., are responding to reports of a shooting at a local Walmart on Monday morning. “At this time we can confirm a shooting in Walmart parking lot,” the Duncan Police Department wrote on Facebook. “We have 3 deceased individuals, 1 Female and 1 Male were deceased in the car and 1 Male outside of the car. A handgun was found on scene.”

Police chief Danny Ford told the Associated Press that officers on the scene are currently looking for witnesses, and that more information will be forthcoming.

Casey Staheli, a Walmart spokesperson tells TIME that no Walmart employees were involved with the shooting. “This was an isolated incident in the parking lot and was not an active shooter situation,” Staheli added in an emailed statement.

Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating the shooting, including the Stephens County Sheriff’s office, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, according to the AP.

The Duncan shooting follows several others that have taken place in California in the last week, including a Sunday evening shooting in Fresno, Calif. that left four dead and 6 injured.

Schools in Duncan were temporarily on lockdown, according to a statement by Duncan Public Schools.

Correction, Nov. 18

The original version of this story misstated how many people were injured, but not killed, in Sunday’s shooting in Fresno, Calif. It is 6 people, not 10.
