“Active shooter at Battlefield Walmart. I was shopping way in the back oblivious to the evacuation from the store,” read the caption of the post.

“Escorted to my car in the parking lot & left. Happy to be home safe. Prayers for all injured.”

Kevin C Harper, who apparently works at the Walmart went live on Facebook and spoke briefly about his experience.

He says he walked out of the break room when the gunfire happened.

“As soon as I left out the break room, he went in there, man.”

Harper said he left his jacket inside the store before ultimately getting in his car and driving away.

He added that he saw other people running and did the same.

Another worker, a woman, could be heard sobbing in the background of the video over the deaths.

“I ran out the back door,” she cried.
