RENO, Nev. (AP) — Police say a Thanksgiving night dispute in the parking lot of a Nevada Wal-Mart has left one man dead.

Police in Reno say the argument began shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday. They say two vehicles stopped near the exit of the lot. They say both persons involved were armed with weapons and a 33-year-old man was shot dead at the scene.

Investigators say no arrests have been made, but those involved in the shooting have been located. The vehicles and gun have also been recovered.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.

In Memphis, police say a man has been injured after shots were fired in the parking lot of a mall after it had opened for shoppers.

Police spokesman Louis Brownlee said in a statement that the victim was hit by gunfire along with multiple cars Thursday night at the Wolfchase Galleria Mall.

An off-duty officer reported shots fired shortly after 11 p.m. The mall had opened at 6 p.m. offering early deals for Black Friday shoppers.

Media report that three suspects have been taken into custody. Police say they don’t know the motive for the shooting, but are still investigating.

Wolfchase Galleria General Manager Charles Tarkington says safety is a primary concern and officials there are working closely with police.

Authorities in New Jersey say a man has been fatally shot and his brother was wounded in the parking lot of a mall.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton said that the shooting happened around 1 a.m. Friday outside the Macy’s store of the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing. The Macy’s store had opened at 5 p.m. Thursday. The mall, which was open from 7 p.m. to midnight Thursday, reopened at 6 a.m. for Black Friday shoppers.

Ruberton says a 20-year-old Atlantic City man was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim’s 26-year-old brother, from Clayton, was shot in the leg and listed in stable condition at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Officials didn’t immediately say what sparked the shooting or if they had any suspects.

More than 15 evidence markers were laid down in the parking lot and an SUV with bullet holes was towed away around 7 a.m. Friday.
