2 people and shooter dead in South Florida supermarket shooting, police say

Two people, including a child, were killed in a shooting at a Publix supermarket in South Florida on Thursday, and the shooter is also dead, police said.

The shooting happened inside a Publix in Royal Palm Beach, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tweeted. Sheriff’s deputies found a child, a woman and a man dead from gunshot wounds when they arrived at the store.

Deputies responded to the shooting at 11:40 a.m. local time, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Teri Barbera told reporters. They found the three bodies near the store’s produce area, she said.

“We’re trying to determine what led up to the shooting,” she said. “We’re talking to witnesses. We’re reviewing video.”

The sheriff’s office said the shooting wasn’t an active shooter situation. No other details were immediately provided.

In a statement, Publix said that it was cooperating with law enforcement and couldn’t confirm any additional information.

“Our thoughts are with those who are impacted by this tragedy,” the company said.

Publix has more than 800 stores in Florida, according to its website.
