"She's going to be fine. I guess they're doing surgery and all," said D.J. Forbes, a cousin of one of the victims.

Police said witnesses saw a security guard and a woman arguing inside the store. Minutes later, they said, the woman called her husband. "If a wife has to call her husband for a situation, you're being disrespectful," said Forbes. 

Forbes said the disrespect continued outside in the parking lot, after his cousin walked out to meet her husband. Witnesses told police that, when the husband got there, the security guard shot both the husband and his wife. "I don't know how far security is supposed to take it. Should they be shooting?" said Tamika Ingram. 

Customers are asking that same question at the store. Ingram said she knows the security guard. "He was very quiet. I never really see him really raise his voice. He's always pretty much just out here watching the customers, watching us come in and out, making sure everything is good," said Ingram. 

On Monday, as many wondered what started the argument that led up to the shooting, police are hoping to find the answer when they look through the security video.
