NEENAH, Wis. (WSAU-WRN) - An employee at a Walmart in Neenah is in critical condition, after police say she was shot during a confrontation at the store Wednesday morning.
Neenah Police Chief Kevin Wilkinson says 46-year-old Justine Boyd walked into the store’s liquor department, argued with the employee, and then shot the employee in the stomach. Boyd is also a cashier at the store, and worked with the victim. The injured employee is a 56-year-old woman from Neenah whose name has not been made public. She underwent emergency surgery and remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Wilkinson says the suspect and victim knew each other, but the motive remains unclear. “This investigation continues,” he says, “clearly we’ll be asking a lot of those questions and finding out all the background that we can, anything that would have lead up to this incident.”
Wilkinson says it does not look like the suspect was trying to rob the store, and she remained there until police arrived. “There’s no indication that the person made any attempt to flea … stayed in the store and was identified by the people who saw what occurred.”
Only one shot was fired. Wilkinson says investigators are looking at surveillance video of the incident.
