One person was injured in a shooting at the Walmart in Newberry Township on Sunday afternoon, police said.

The 30-year-old individual suffered an injury to the arm or side of the body, Chief Steven Lutz said during a news conference. He was hit in the arm or the side of the body.

The suspect is 33-year-old man. Both knew each other, and police are calling it a domestic situation. They were from the York area, he said.

"This was an isolated event. The public is not in danger," Lutz said.

Police received a call about 4:43 p.m. about a potential active shooter at the Walmart, which is near Interstate 83. Officers arrived on the scene within a minute and confirmed that a shooting had taken place, Lutz said.

An off-duty police officer had the suspect detained, Lutz said. Officers secured the weapon and made their way throughout the store.

Police found an individual who suffered a gunshot wound. A medic and other bystanders had placed a tourniquet on him and had performed other lifesaving measures, the chief said.

Law enforcement evacuated the building to ensure no one else was injured.

Police said a handgun was used in the shooting.
