Colorado Walmart shooting: Death toll rises to 3

Multiple parties down in Colorado Walmart shooting

Thornton police said two people were killed and one injured in a shooting at a Walmart in Thornton, police said.

Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting three people inside a suburban Denver Walmart tried to flee officers in his auto but was blocked by traffic. Ryan Luby of Denver's local ABC News outlet reported that at least two people have been shot.

Police spotted the vehicle and followed it, eventually stopping Ostrem in his Mitsubishi Mirage and taking him into custody.

Just before 9 p.m. Mountain Time, the Thorton Police Department confirmed that two men are dead and one woman was wounded and taken to the hospital.

Thornton is city of about 120,000 people roughly 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Denver.

Customers and employees hid or fled toward the exits after gunshots rang out in Thornton, a suburb of Denver. "Customers were screaming. They were running like insane, and I ran out too because I didn't want to get killed", he said.

A spokesman for the Thornton Police Department could not be immediately reached by AFP.
