Gunman’s threats on Facebook


The gunman who stalked and then fatally shot a grandmothe­r and her 1-year-old grandson inside a Florida supermarke­t had been threatenin­g to kill people, including children, on his Facebook page but no one reported him, a Florida sheriff said yesterday. Timothy J Wall, 55, had been making the threats for some time before he walked into a Publix in Royal Palm Beach on Friday and stalked his victims in the produce aisle before shooting the child and then the woman before killing himself, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said. Detectives have found no connection between Wall and the woman.
