The gunman committed suicide after the shooting.
Here’s more from The Hill:
At least 13 people were shot and one person was killed in a shooting at a grocery store in Tennessee on Thursday, according to police.
The shooter also shot and killed himself, Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane said at a press conference.
Witnesses reported hearing at least a dozen shots, according to WREG, a local CBS-affiliate station.
The Memphis Police Department tweeted that they were working to secure the scene at the Kroger store in Collierville, Tenn., a suburb of Memphis.
Police aren’t identifying the shooter yet nor are they saying whether the shooter was an employee of the grocery store or not.
I hate to speculate, but my gut tells me this wasn’t an AR style weapon or the death toll would likely be higher.
We’ll post more here as we find out more…
