COTTONWOOD, Ariz. -- A melee in a Walmart parking lot left one person dead, one wounded, and a police officer shot.
Detectives worked all night and into the morning collecting evidence from this massive crime scene.
Louie Solano was a witness to what occurred.
"I was here last night, it was a lot of noise. It looked like a riot in the middle of the parking lot, I mean it was unbelievable," Solano told KPHO.
A total of eight police officers were roughed up. One even took a bullet in the leg, when nine suspects began to brawl with police.
Police said the 31-year-old officer who was shot has been on the force for 10 years. He is expected to make a full recovery.
When the melee was over one person was dead and another was shot in the stomach. Medics said a Walmart employee was also treated for a broken arm.
"Lot of screams. Female just screeching noise. Like unreal, unreal. I heard about 8 to 10 shots," Solano said.
Investigators said all of the suspects were related and seven people were taken to jail.
