At least three people are dead after an armed man got into an argument with a New Orleans gun store clerk and opened fire on Saturday.

The man was shot dead by other armed customers. Police believe the suspect shot first and killed two people in the store. Two more people were taken to a hospital and are said to be in stable condition.

The shooting occurred after a clerk scolded one of the customers for carrying a loaded gun outside of the shooting range area, local media reports. That exchange escalated into a firefight, which is when other customers got involved to neutralize the suspect.
