Sanders reportedly told investigators that he was the front seat passenger of a black Buick Regal in the Target parking lot, located at 3835 Dryland Way, when two men in a white car got into the backseat of the Buick. He said the two men started to argue, so he exited the car and started to run toward the front of the store when the men started shooting at him.
He reportedly fired back at them with a pistol he brought with him. He disposed of the pistol under a car parked in the lot.READ MORE: One Of Last Marines To Leave Afghanistan Returns Home To Hero's Welcome In Ridley Township
