Video: 7-Eleven Customers Pull Guns on Each Other, One Shot

Two customers pulled guns on each other inside the store, and one man got a shot off, hitting the other man in the face. The injury wasn't life threatening.
-7-Eleven Customers Pull Guns on Each Other in Chandler, One Shot in the Face
If that sounds like a familiar story, it's probably because a couple weeks before that, a man was fatally shot at Walmart -- about a mile down the road from this 7-Eleven -- after getting into an altercation with a customer there.
At the 7-Eleven, the two men started an argument, which escalated into the two men shoving each other, police said.
Both men pulled guns on one another, and police said it appears the man who pulled his gun first was the one who fired the shot.
The man who was shot was identified as 39-year-old Kenneth Morrow. The other person seen around Morrow in the video is his teenage son.
The shooter, a 34-year-old Chandler resident whose name wasn't released, hasn't been arrested in the shooting. Police said he cooperated with police, and the Maricopa County Attorney's Office would review the case to determine if charges are appropriate.
