A confrontation inside a "Toys R Us" store ended with two people dead. The shooting happened in Palm Desert about 120 miles east of Los Angeles. Two gunmen opened fire on each other just after 11:30 a.m. Friday. Chaos broke out in the store as parents with kids attempted to escape the gunfire. Police believe two groups of men were involved in some sort of confrontation prior to the shooting.

They also say the men are from rival groups. At the time of the shooting the store was packed with black Friday shoppers.

No children were hurt in the incident. Police will not say if the shooting is gang related.
