CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

Police said an argument led to a fatal shooting at a Walmart in Chandler on Sunday afternoon.

Cyle Wayne Quadlin, 25, of Chandler, and Kriston Charles Belinte Chee, 36, got into an argument at the store's service counter just after 4 p.m. that escalated to a physical fight, said a Chandler police spokesman.

Quadlin told police he was losing the fight and said he "was in fear for his life" so he pulled a gun and shot Belinte Chee, the spokesman said.

Belinte Chee was taken to an area hospital in critical condition and later died from his injuries, the spokesman said.

Quadlin fled the Walmart at 800 W. Warner Rd. but was later contacted and interviewed by officers, the spokesman said. He added that Quadlin was being cooperative.

Quadlin was not booked into jail and the case is pending review by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, the spokesman said.

The spokesman said it appears the men did not know each other.

Walmart said it is sending crisis counselors to the suburban Phoenix store.

Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee says the retailer is working with police to provide them any information they might find useful. She said the company's "thoughts and prayers are with all of those involved."
