OCALA, Fla. (AP) - A man suspected of fatally shooting a woman in a north Florida Walmart store on Saturday afternoon is being hospitalized due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Ocala police said in a Facebook post that the suspected shooter was in custody and still alive late Saturday afternoon.

The shooting occurred during an apparent domestic dispute in the garden section of a Walmart store in Ocala, which is north of Orlando along Interstate 75.

After being shot, the 30-year-old woman screamed for help and employees called 911 and also attempted to intervene.

Colleen Wade told the Ocala Star-Banner she heard a crashing sound and turned down an aisle in the garden section where she saw a man standing over a woman firing shots. He calmly left the store and rode away on a bicycle, Wade said.

The woman was taken to a hospital, where she died.

Police have not released the names of the man or the woman, pending notification of her family.

Police say no one else was injured.
