DEMING, N.M. -- A shooting occurred Tuesday at a Wal-Mart store in this southern New Mexico city, a police dispatcher said.

The dispatcher said she had no other details. It was not immediately known if anyone was injured at the store in Deming.

Sharon Weber, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart at company headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., confirmed that there had been a shooting in the "vestibule area" of the store.

Weber had no other information, and referred other questions to police.

Messages left for sheriff and city police officials were not immediately returned.

Susan Schiffner, who works at a Kmart store nearby, said she saw at least three ambulances at the scene.

"There's police all over," she said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "They've evacuated the building. It's a crime scene now."

Deming is about 100 miles northwest of El Paso.
