Customers Run For Cover Inside N.C Target When Man Shoots And Kills Former Lover Before Turning Gun On Himself
Published on June 1, 2010
Two people are dead after a Sunday shooting at the Super Target store in the Beaver Creek Commons shopping center off Highway 55. Police Captain Ann Stephens told ABC11 a man came in just after 11:30 a.m. and shot 59-year-old employee Guadalupe Rosas of Apex. Shoppers ran for cover as the shots rang out, but no one else was injured by the gunfire. Witness Justin Ley told ABC11 he was in the checkout line next to Rosas when it happened. He said there was no yelling before the shooting that happened just after Rosas opened a new register. After shooting her, Ley said the shooter then pointed the gun at him and told him to "get the f*** out," and he ran. Stephens said the shooter was still in the store when police officers arrived. They challenged him to put down his pistol, but Stephens said he instead put the gun to his own head and killed himself."
