BROOMFIELD, Colo. (KKTV) - A 21-year-old woman faces a slew of charges after shots were fired inside a Broomfield Walmart Tuesday.

Investigators say Alyssa Borquez and a yet-identified man shot at each other inside the superstore. No one was hit, and authorities believe the pair knew each other.

According to the Broomfield Police Department, Borquez faces attempted first-degree murder, felony menacing, child abuse and reckless endangerment, among other charges.

"We believe this event was not random, but rather a dispute between two parties who know each other. The child abuse charge is a result of one of the involved parties having a young child in the area at the time of the shooting," police said in a statement.

The child was reportedly a relative of Borquez's, not her child.

The second suspect was arrested several hours after the shooting. Charges against him have not been released due to the stage of the investigation.

"We understand this event has shaken our community. Please know we are working tirelessly to get answers and will provide updates as they become available," police said.

The store was closed for the rest of Tuesday.
