NEENAH, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Neenah said Friday that the suspect in a workplace shooting this week legally carried her firearm.

In a release by the Neenah Police Department, 46-year-old Justine Boyd was in possession of a legally obtained permit to carry a concealed weapon when she was arrested Wednesday.

Boyd is accused of shooting fellow Wal-Mart cashier Sharon Goffard inside the liquor department at the store on Winneconne Avenue.

Police say a motive in the crime remains a mystery, but Chief Kevin Wilkinson says it does appear to have arisen from a personal dispute. Wilkinson ruled out any other criminal motive, such as a robbery.

Also Friday police say while Boyd did not violate a state law or local ordinance, she did break a Wal-Mart policy against employees being armed while working at the store.

Meantime, the 56-year-old Goffard remains in critical condition at Theda Clark Medical Center after she was shot in the stomach. 

Goffard's family has established a fund for her:
