BREAKING: Multiple People Reported Shot At Kroger In Kentucky

Update III:

According to a report from CNN, before murdering two people at a Kentucky Kroger in Jeffersontown, the shooter tried to enter a predominantly black church. After failing to do so because the doors were locked, the murderer shot and killed an individual in the Kroger grocery store before shooting and killing another individual in the parking lot. Both victims were African American.


A bystander with a legal conceal-carry permit engaged the shooter, forcing the shooter to leave the scene.

The suspect was apprehended nearby.
