Witnesses say three men walked into the Laced shoe store in a Crichton shopping center Saturday morning and shot a man in the stomach.

Mobile Police say Christopher Edwards, 20, died at the hospital. A chaotic scene unfolded after the shooting.

A witness tells NBC 15 News a man in the store who had been with Edwards ran out to a car, grabbed an assault rifle and fired retaliatory shots into a brown sedan. Police say one person was hurt by flying glass.

Police say officers later discovered a car connected to the shooting and chased it to Perimeter Road and Avenue O near Brookley, where four men ran out.

Oscar Phillips, 24, Jeremy Nelson, 20, Joseph Nelson 22 and Keondrea Adams, 19, were arrested.

Police say the person who shot Edwards is still on the loose.
