Suspect identified in Louisville grocery store shooting

The man who walked into a grocery store in Louisville, Kentucky and allegedly shot dead one man inside and one woman outside, has been arrested.

Jeffersontown Police Chief Sam Rogers said at a media briefing just after 5:15 p.m. that a man walked into the popular Kroger location at 9080 Taylorsville Road, near the corner of Hurstbourne Parkway in Jeffersontown, and fired multiple shots at a man.

According to WHAS in Louisville, that man is 51-year-old Gregory Alan Bush.

An employee told Louisville Business First she saw a woman shot in the parking lot, first in the torso, then in the head.

Jeffersontown officials are expected to give an update on the investigation Thursday morning. Asked if the male victim in the store was also killed at random, Rogers said.

The report says Bush repeatedly unplugged the phone so they couldn't call police and fled the home with a handgun.

Video taken by a store owner showed the suspect wandering around the parking lot as bystanders shouted his location to police. The shooter then left the store, and then opened fire at a female victim.

Deacon said he went to the woman to start CPR on her but realized he couldn't help her.

"I am angry about the tragedy that results from people with guns who have no respect for human life", he wrote. "And she said, 'There's someone shooting up here'".

We are shocked and saddened by the shooting incident that occurred around 2:30 pm today.

The Jeffersontown Police Department issued a statement Thursday afternoon indicating that it is working in concert with the Louisville Metro Police Department, FBI and ATF to investigate the double murder and "determine any possible motive behind the suspect's actions".
