What we know about the Thornton Walmart shooting

What we know about the Thornton Walmart shooting

The three people who were killed were the only ones who were shot by Ostrem.

Moreno, of Thornton, was a grandfather who was a longtime maintenance worker at the Auraria Higher Education Center in downtown Denver.

Court records also show Ostrem filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2015. Thornton police said a nationwide extradition homicide warrant has been issued for the 47-year-old Ostrem. Authorities have not yet released information on victims' identities.

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

SWAT officers who helped with the arrest did use a "flash bang" to distract Ostrem, Avila said. 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.

"We had to discern what exactly was going on, whether that was a suspect or a citizen wondering what was going on and concerned by the sound of gunshots", Avila said.

A citizen tip led police to the apartment.

The shooting comes a day after a man in New York City allegedly killed eight people on a Manhattan bike path before police officers were able to apprehend and take him into custody.

"Detectives now reviewing security footage & witnesses being interviewed for assistance with the suspect (s)", police said on Twitter.

Colorado authorities are searching for a man who police say nonchalantly walked into a Walmart and immediately opened fire, killing two men and a woman Wednesday night.

Customers and employees hid or fled toward the exits after gunshots rang out in Thornton, a suburb of Denver.

Authorities are reviewing security video to identify the suspect, who fled in a vehicle before officers arrived.
