Authorities said that on Thursday afternoon, a gunman attacked a grocery store in an upscale suburb of Tennessee, killing one person and injuring 12 others. The suspect was later found dead of gunshot wounds, apparently from the store.
Collierville Police chief Dale Lane claimed that the shooting happened at a Kroger grocery shop in a suburban area about 50 kilometers (30 miles) east Memphis. According to Lane, the gunman killed 13 people, including himself. Twelve victims were taken by ambulance to the hospital, with some seriously hurt.
Kroger employee Brignetta Dickerson told WREG-TV she was at the cash register when she first heard the balloon burst.
Dixon stated, “Also he started shooting right next to us.” Dixon said, “Also he continued shooting, shooting and shooting.” He shot one my colleagues in their heads and another in my abdomen.
Lane claimed that Lane received a call from the police regarding the shooting at around 1:30pm and arrived on the scene in just a few minutes. They found many victims when they arrived at the scene.
He claimed that a police team, along with other officers, walked up and down each aisle looking for people hiding or seeking cover. They then took them to a safe location. According to him, the gunman, who he identified as a male, was killed by an apparent self-harming gunshot injury.
“We found someone hiding inside the freezer in a locked room. They were doing what they were taught to do: escape, hide and fight.” The chief didn’t elaborate.
Dixon claimed that Dixon was the victim of a shooting in the head to her friend in her 20s. He also said that he wanted his mother notified.
Dixon stated that Dixon left Dixon a voicemail box and claimed that he was talking and alert. Dixon also said she was trying to reach Dixon.
Glenda McDonald, another employee, described the chaos to WHBQ TV.
She stated that she heard a gunshot while walking towards the flower section. “Sounds like it’s coming from a deli. I ran to the front door, and they had already photographed the front door.
Ryan informed reporters about the scene, telling them it was a sad moment for his department.
