Man With AK-47 Kills 2, Himself at NJ Market

A disgruntled employee shot and killed two people and then himself early this morning at a New Jersey supermarket, the Star-Ledger reports. The shooting took place around 4am, after the alleged shooter, 23, got into an argument with his co-workers at the closed store. He went out to his car and returned with an AK-47 and an automatic pistol. He fired off 16 rounds, and had multiple magazines of ammunition, CNN reports.

There were 12 to 14 workers in the store at the time, and many fled to the back of the store to escape. "I believe everyone in the store was a target," a county prosecutor says. The suspect was an ex-Marine identified as Terence Tyler, and he may have had a history of depression or mental illness, a law enforcement source tells NBC New York. The victims included an 18-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man.
