A Mississippi man who allegedly shot and killed a woman outside of an Amazon warehouse on Friday has also been killed by the police after a shootout.

Corey D. Brewer, 44, reportedly shot and killed Ebony Leshay Crocket, 44, at an Amazon warehouse in Horn Lake, Mississippi, on Friday morning. Crocket was allegedly shot three times in the parking lot. According to reports, the two knew each other as employees of Amazon.

Employees at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Horn Lake described a fearful panic after a woman was killed in the facility's back parking lot. "This kind of stuff is happening literally everywhere," said Justin Mitchell, an Amazon employee." I was going outside to smoke a cigarette or whatever. I had grabbed my little sandwich to eat. You know, it was a lunch break. I wasn't expecting anything like this. Nobody was," he added.

Meanwhile, Horn Lake Police responded to a call of shots fired at the fulfillment center just after 12:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon. After Brewer was suspected of killing Crocket, a BOLO was spread out and relayed to local law enforcement agencies. A murder warrant was also issued for Brewer. "They immediately got us all inside as quickly as possible, got us in a safe spot and made sure everyone was accounted for, fed us, got us drinks and stuff like that until all this got cleared out," Mitchell said.

According to Memphis police, they attempted to pull over a Honda on I-40 at 3:20 p.m. There they discovered the alleged suspect in the fatal shooting of a woman. During the traffic stop, Brewer was instructed to exit the vehicle. "According to preliminary information from the scene, the individual inside of the vehicle fired a weapon. Officers returned fire, striking the suspect," said TBI spokeswoman Keli McAlister. Brewer was killed while no officers were injured.

Amazon said in a statement, "We're heartbroken by this violent act and we extend our deepest sympathy to the victim's family."

"There is no gate, and they should have a large gate or a guard shack. They do in Memphis, and they should have one here," employee Justin Huber said.

The police report on the Saturday shooting detailed that an argument between Smith and some people at a demonstration in the park precipitated the shooting, where the man reportedly shot at least four other protesters. This is a representational image. Unsplash
