2 dead, 12 injured in grocery store attack


A gunman killed one person, wounded 12 and then apparently killed himself at a Tennessee supermarke­t on Thursday, pursuing panicked shoppers and employees as they fled down the aisles while some took refuge in store freezers, police said. Of the 12 wounded, one was in surgery and another in intensive care after the shooting in the Memphis suburb of Colliervil­le, Police Chief Dale Lane told reporters. “We found people hiding in freezers and in locked offices. They were doing what they had been trained to do — run, hide, fight,” Lane added, calling the gun violence “the most horrific event that has occurred in Colliervil­le history”.
