According to Walmart spokesman Dan Fogleman the suspected gunman, as well as all three victims, are employees at the store.

Reno Deputy Police Chief Mike Whan says the lone gunman entered the store about 8:30 a.m. and started shooting in the direction of an employee or employees with a small caliber handgun, reports CBS affiliate KTVN.

He says the three employees shot are being treated at a local hospital, but their lives are not believed to be in danger.

About 100 people in the store were safely evacuated.
