An employee who attempted to disarm a gunman was among the victims of a shooting inside a Safeway supermarket in Bend, Oregon, police said Monday.
Two people were killed in the shooting Sunday evening, police said. The alleged gunman was also found dead inside the store of a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.
The two victims were identified Monday as 84-year-old Bend resident Glenn Edward Bennett and 66-year-old Donald Ray Surrett, a Bend resident and Safeway employee. Two others suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to Sheila Miller, communications director of Bend County Police Department.
The incident was reported just after 7 p.m. local time at The Forum Shopping Center in Bend, a small city about 130 miles southeast of Oregon’s capital, Salem.
