PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — Sheriff's officers say a shootout Sunday afternoon at a Walmart in Washington state left two people dead and two sheriff's deputies wounded.

Kitsap County sheriff's spokesman Scott Wilson says a man was shot to death by deputies outside the store in Port Orchard Sunday afternoon, while a young woman died after being taken to a Tacoma hospital.

Wilson says officers received a call about a suspicious person at the store. He says deputies tried to talk to the man, who then ran and began shooting. Three deputes, including the two wounded, returned fire.

Wilson says he doesn't know whether the two people who were killed knew each other.
