Largo, Florida -- Police say two people are dead from a shooting in the parking lot of a Largo Walgreens.

The shooting happened around Noon Wednesday near the pharmacy drive-thru at the store located at 5800 Roosevelt Boulevard. 

Largo Police are calling the shooting a murder-suicide.

Police tell 10 News a husband and wife in their late 30's or early 40's were arguing as they drove down Roosevelt Blvd in a red pickup truck.

Officers say they pulled into the Walgreens, where the man shot the woman and then killed himself.

"I heard one pop, then I turned around and he unloaded seven more shots into the woman," said Samantha Warren, who was driving through the pharmacy with a baby.

Other shoppers were there moments later.

"We saw the blood and the color of his face," said Jessica Barrett, "it was like, 'Is this really happening?'  It was surreal."

No names have been released at this point.

Police also aren't saying what the specific motive may have been, other than calling it a domestic disturbance.
