    Dozens of people witnessed the shooting at the Walmart at El Dorado Parkway and FM 423 in Frisco.

    Police say it occured during a drug deal between four men.

    "Two black males fired upon the other two males that were there and one of them had to be Careflighted to the hospital for shots to his upper torso," said Sgt. Adam Henderson, spokesperson for the Frisco Police Department.

    The shooting 5:30 p.m. happened in broad daylight and in front of several neighboring businesses.

    Some frequent Walmart shoppers and Frisco residents say they are concerned about what seems to be a hike in violent crimes.

    "It's scary and it makes me scared to go to Walmart actually," said Donna Blume, a frequent Walmart shopper.

    But Frisco Police maintain there is no connection between the two separate shootings.

    "The connection is only that it was an illegal drug transaction. I don't see any link that it's at a Walmart and it's incurring any type of crime in that area," said Henderson.
