    A man is dead and a search was underway for a suspected gunman after a quarrel inside a suburban Texas Wal-Mart climaxed with a fatal shooting in the store parking lot.

    The incident happened about 7 p.m. Wednesday at a Wal-Mart store in Stafford, just southwest of Houston. Police Lt. James Leedom says it wasn't immediately clear what ignited the quarrel and what caused it to escalate into deadly gunplay.

    However, Leedom says police don't believe the men knew each other and suspect the incident was a chance occurrence. Officers were reviewing surveillance footage in the hope of developing a description for the suspect.

    Witness Paul Veliz says the wounded man had been with a woman and a child. No one else was injured.
