03 November 2017

Two men died after the gunman opened fire in the store in Thornton, Colorado on Wednesday night.

Police are saying this is not an active shooter situation, but it is an active crime scene.

Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting three people inside a Colorado Walmart has a minor criminal record.

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

Police have now confirmed that two adult males have died as a result of the shooting while one adult female has been transported to a nearby hospital.

Thornton Police Department spokesman Victor Aliva said there was no indication as to motive at this stage.
