Two dead, including suspect, in Tennessee store shooting
The Collierville, Tenn., police department responded to a call on Thursday afternoon of an active shooter at a nearby Kroger. Within minutes, a SWAT team arrived to find multiple people wounded inside the store. They scoured the aisles, rescuing people injured or hiding in freezers, offices, and shelves. Police Chief Dale Lane said the shooter killed one person, and about a dozen other victims were taken to nearby hospitals. Lane called the shooting the “most horrific event in Collierville history.”
What happened to the shooter? Police found the suspect dead at the scene from a presumed self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities have not released identities for any of the victims or the shooter, and the store remains closed as they investigate. A nearby high school was temporarily placed on lockdown. Collierville is a suburb roughly 30 miles east of Memphis, Tenn.
