Moms Demand Action’s policies and ideas continue to fail: mass shooting at Kroger in TN
Thirteen people were shot, two are dead in what Police Chief Dale Lane called “the most horrific event that’s occurred in Collierville history.”
One of the two dead is the shooter, who died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Lane said.
Law enforcement are still working some active scenes, including waiting on equipment to search the shooter’s car and some property of the shooter.
Part of the ongoing investigation is the shooter’s connection to Kroger, Lane said.
“It’s with a broken heart that I have to stand before you today,” Lane said. “Please keep the families in your prayers.”
Dispatchers received the call of an active shooter situation at the Kroger located at 240 New Byhalia Rd. at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The first police car arrived on scene at 1:34, Lane said, and officers began clearing the Kroger, aisle to aisle and room to room.
Lane said he did not know how many people were in the store at the time of the shooting, but that there were quite a few witnesses.
“We found people hiding in freezers and in locked offices,” Lane said. “They were doing what they had been trained to do. Run, hide, fight. I hate that we had to do it here.”
One Kroger employee was rescued from the roof, he said.
Lane would not describe what kind of weapon the shooter had.
At about 3:40 p.m., a spokesperson from Regional One Health said the hospital had received nine patients related to the shooting. Four of those patients were in critical condition.
Laws and store policies DO NOT STOP people from doing evil things. I sincerely wish the people at Moms Demand Action would recognize this, as one of their “achievements” is anything but.
