3 victims of Walmart shooting identified

3 victims of Walmart shooting identified”

Police said Ostrem walked into the south doors at the Walmart located at 9900 Grant St. around 6:10 PM Wednesday and "nonchalantly" began firing.

Teresa Muniz (MUHN'-is) says Ostrem never returned her greetings and once or twice swore at people for sitting in the stairways or leaving laundry in communal machines.

A gunman today walked into a Walmart store in Colorado and opened indiscriminate fire, killing three persons including a woman before fleeing in a auto, police said.

Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that 47-year-old Scott Ostrem had a minor criminal history, but Avila didn't elaborate.

Copter4 flew over the scene of Ostrem's arrest.

Court records also show Ostrem filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2015.

Ostrem was arrested Thursday morning outside his home after an overnight manhunt. The female victim died later at the hospital.

What they do know is that it is not believed to have been an act of terrorism.

An anonymous tipster spotted Ostrem's vehicle not far from his apartment at around 8 a.m. Thursday and notified police, who Avila says were nearly immediately on his tail. But they got an anonymous tip that he was driving in the area and spotted him.

Forty-eight witnesses were taken from the Walmart to a nearby police building where they were questioned and released. Avila says that information will come from the coroner's office once their families have been notified.

A police officer told reporters that not much is now known about the shooting or the culprit, who exited the store and has not been found. Two men died inside the Walmart, which is about 16 km north of Denver in a busy shopping centre.
