Gunman opens fire in Walmart; 3 dead

The seemingly random shooting Wednesday in Thornton, Colorado comes a month after a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

The gunman entered the Thornton store and fired a handgun at a group of people, before fleeing in a auto.

Ostrem "nonchalantly" entered the store just after 6pm and gunned down shoppers and employees, killing two men and a woman, police said.

Thornton police say 47-year-old Scott Ostrem was arrested Thursday morning, about 14 hours after he fled the store in a auto.

Neighbors of the man suspected of fatally shooting three people at a suburban Denver Walmart say he was unfriendly and occasionally hostile toward them.

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

Avila couldn't provide much information about the weapon used in the shooting, other than to say it was a handgun.

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.

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

Police arrested the suspected gunman in Westminster.

Thornton Police didn't reveal any details spontaneously neither about the circumstances of the shooting nor the people who were responsible for the shooting.

"Let's get this guy as soon as possible", said Avila. However, a Thornton PD spokesperson did refer to the shooting as a heinous act.

"The employees started screaming".

After an hour of fire, Thornton Police tweeted that the place is out of danger now when the Walmart was surrounded by police and fire crews.
