Shooter, 2 Others, Including Child, Killed In Florida Grocery Store Shooting

THREE people are reportedly dead after a shooting in a Royal Palm Beach Publix on Thursday morning.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the shooter is among those dead, which include a man, a woman and a child, Xinhua reported.

According to a tweet from the sheriff's office, the shooter was among the deceased. The agent said the other two included a woman and a child.

"This was not an active shooter situation", the sheriff's office said without providing further details.

A shooting inside a Florida supermarket on Thursday morning has left three people dead, including a child and the gunman.

Juan Guardia said he was in the supermarket's deli area when chaos erupted. "You don't like to hear about them anywhere in the country", McKinlay said, according to WPTV.

Tracy Greene had just finished getting her nails done and was driving home when she saw the massive law enforcement presence on Okeechobee Boulevard.

Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay said the deceased child was a toddler. I just can't believe this has happened inside the store. The company is Florida's largest grocery chain and has more than 1,200 stores in the Southern United States.

Publix confirmed the shooting in a statement Thursday, saying, "Our thoughts are with those who are impacted by this tragedy".

The shooting occurred in a Publix grocery store in Royal Palm Beach, 80 miles (130 kilometers) north of Miami, police said. All additional questions should be forwarded to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
