Two people were shot and killed late this morning at a Toys R' Us in Palm Desert, just outside of Palm Springs. Witnesses say they heard an argument between two women--assumed to be over a Black Friday sale--before someone yelled "he's got a gun!" Then three or four shots were fired causing chaos in the store as people tried to evacuate. KNX1070 says the victims might be two women.
