RED BLUFF, Calif. - Walmart released a statement sharing their thoughts and condolences to those affected by the shooting at their Red Bluff distribution center Saturday. 

According to officals, the shooting occurred on Saturday, June 27 around 3:30 p.m. when 31-year-old Louis Lane drove into the Walmart Distribution Center lobby with his car and began randomly firing his weapon at those inside.

Police say two died, including the shooter, and four others went to the hospital with injuries ranging from minor to moderate.

Lane was shot by a Red Bluff Police officer and later pronounced dead. His exact motive is unknown but officials did report that Lane was once an employee at the center but was let go in February of 2019 for failure to show up for his shift. 

The other victim of the shooting was Martin Haro-Lozano who was found injured at the scene and taken to a local hospital by police but was then pronounced dead.

Walmart said that Lozano "was a 12-year associate with family and friends working in the same facility. He will be dearly missed."

Walmart thanks their associates for their bravery saying, "we are incredibly thankful to the associates in the building who acted heroically to prevent the situation from being even worse. They risked their lives to help their fellow associates, and we are forever grateful to them."

Walmart officials say there is now an active investigation, and that they will continue to assist the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office in any way possible.

They say that the facility is now closed, and they will support associates with pay and on-site help.
