COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The son of a woman killed in a Tennessee grocery store shooting Thursday says in a Facebook post that “this type of crime needs to stop being glossed over and sanitized."
Wes King says his mother, Olivia King, was shot in the chest at a Kroger grocery in Collierville, an upscale suburb outside of Memphis.
Police say twelve others were wounded, some seriously, in the shooting that occurred around 1:30 p.m.
The suspected shooter died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Police have said the suspect was male but haven't identified him further.
The investigation is ongoing.
