A shooting at a Publix supermarket in Florida left three people dead, including the suspected shooter, authorities said Thursday.
The shooting occurred shortly after 11:30 a.m. ET in a Publix store in the 1100 block of Royal Palm Beach Boulevard in Royal Palm Beach, about 15 miles west of Palm Beach, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
It was not immediately clear who the suspect was. Authorities identified the three victims as a man, a woman and a child. The child would have turned 2 at the end of the month, according to the sheriff’s office.
The man died of a self-inflicted wound, authorities confirmed.
Publix said in a statement that it was aware of the shooting and that it was directing questions to the police.
“Our thoughts are with those who are impacted by this tragedy,” Publix said. “We are cooperating with the local law enforcement. Since this is an active police investigation, we cannot confirm any additional details.”
