Police also said the shooter died after what looked like an autopsy. His name, the reason for the attack, and other facts weren’t made public right away.
Before, police said on social media that the store was safe and that there was no longer any “active threat.”
“We’re heartbroken by what’s happened at our Beavercreek, Ohio store. This remains a developing situation, and we’re working closely with investigators on the scene,” Walmart said in a statement.
Two people were shot and killed outside of a Walmart in south Anchorage, Alaska, the day before. The police are still looking for someone who might have done it. People were helped out of the store and into their cars before it closed for the day.
