Authorities say one person is dead and another was injured after a shooting at a Texas Wal-Mart on Tuesday.

Police told reporters a man walked into the Wal-Mart in a small town southeast of Dallas, shot a male employee and then turned the gun on himself. The suspected shooter was later rushed to a local hospital, and his condition is unknown.

Authorities say the two men seemed to know each other and had an ongoing feud but didn't say what led to the shooting.
