Oh no!! A gun related incident has left three dead in Old Bridge, NJ!
According to reports, a shooting occurred around 4am Friday morning at the Pathmark grocery store in Old Bridge, N.J., a suburb about 25 miles from New York.
The 23 year-old gunman was apparently a recently hired employee of the supermarket, and after reportedly getting in an argument with a fellow coworker in the early hours of the morning when the store was closed, he left to obtain a handgun and an AK47 from his car.
Once employees realized what the man was about to do, they locked the store's front doors, which the shooter then reportedly shot to pieces.
The former Marine, who allegedly has a history of depression and mental illness, then proceeded to enter the establishment and shot two people, eventually turning the gun on himself.
The shooter is among the three dead. One victim is an 18 year-old woman and no details have been released about the second.
The gunman was also reported to be wearing body armor and camouflage.
So, so incredibly sad. The recent increase in gun violence in this country is absolutely terrifying.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the loved ones of the people involved in this tragedy.
