    One person died and two others were critically injured after a shooting at a Walmart in Kansas on Sunday, police said.

    Shawnee police spokesman Dan Tennis said in a news release that the incident occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. at a Walmart southwest of Kansas City.

    As a woman was placing her infant in a car seat in the store's parking lot, Tennis said, two suspects struck her in the back of the head with an unspecified object.

    Tennis said a good Samaritan was shot repeatedly after trying to help her. A second good Samaritan then intervened, Tennis said, shooting and killing one of the suspects.
