Three people have been feared dead following a deadly shootout that took place at Publix Store in Florida. One of the deceased happened to be a one-year-old child.


The loss of any person is not an easy thing to deal with, but most significantly, losing a child in their prime can be difficult for any parent or family relative.

Sadly, the family of a one-year-old child is mourning the loss of their child, who was killed in a deadly shooting that took place at a Publix store in Florida.

The incident happened in the early hours of the morning as the police responded to the store around 11:40 am. The victims were found in the produce section of the store.

According to reports, a suspect opened fire at the grocery store located in Royal Palm Beach, killing the child and two adults, a man and a woman. A tweet made by the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office said:


"... This was not an active shooter situation."

It was also

that the suspected shooter was among the fatalities. The child who was to have turned two by the end of the month was with his grandmother, who was also one of the dead victims.

The motive for the shooting has yet to be identified, and the sheriff's office mentioned that there is no known relationship between the shooter and the victims.

He had been seen by witnesses at the store who could identify him.

The family of the boy and grandmother

Marsy's law; hence they will not be identified. Also, the shooter's name will be released as soon as his next of kin is identified, the sheriff's office said.

A detective from the Sheriff's office intimated that investigations have begun and were at the beginning stages to determine what led to the shooting.

Publix's spokesperson confirmed the shooting and added that their thoughts were with those who the tragedy had impacted.

The representative also assured the public that they were cooperating with law enforcement to get to the root of the issue but declined to offer additional information. All inquiries were asked to be sent to the Sheriff's office.

A similar incident occurred a few months earlier in New York's Stop and Shop at Long Island. The suspected shooter Gabriel DeWitt Wilson was taken into custody after a four-hour manhunt.

All victims of the shootout happened to be employees of the store. One of them, a 49-year-old man, died while two were severely injured, but we're responding to treatments.

Gladly, Wilson could be apprehended because he had been seen by witnesses at the store who could identify him. Also, he had employment ties to Shop and Stop making it easier for his identification.
