The investigation continues into the shooting at the Walmart in Oroville that left one man in critical condition.

Oroville police officers are still looking for the 4 suspects involved, who they say are not from around here.

On Wednesday Oroville police officers spoke with the victim's family. They say the victim, who was shot twice, is expected to live.

On Monday afternoon a man was shot in the Walmart parking lot in what police believe was a marijuana transaction gone wrong.

“The suspects popped the trunk, two masked people come out of the trunk and confronted the victim, who is by himself. The victim is seen removing something out of his trunk of his vehicle, and there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from his vehicle,” said Oroville police Lt. Chris Nicodemus.

He said they believe the suspects are from Sacramento, and this was obviously preplanned, which worries people that big city problems are coming to our small towns.

“I come from LA, so I’ve seen this around and I know people here are surprised, but it's happened more than people realize,” one Oroville resident said.

The lieutenant said this was a senseless shooting over something that's legal, and a shooting over marijuana, at a busy shopping center, in broad daylight means these people have little fear of the consequences for their actions, and that's something that he says is troubling to see.

Nicodemus says they are using all of their available resources, executing search warrants, and talking to anyone they can so they can catch the four people involved before they do something like this again.
