According to 10TV:

THORNTON, Colo. (AP) — Colorado authorities have identified a man who police say nonchalantly walked into a Walmart and immediately opened fire with a handgun, killing two men and a woman Wednesday night.

Thornton police are searching for Scott Ostrem, 47, who they say fled in a car before officers arrived. Authorities used security video to help identify the suspect.

The shooting appears random and there are no indications that it was an act of terror, said Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila.

“This is a very heinous act,” Avila said, adding that the motive was unknown.

Two men died inside the Walmart, which is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of Denver in a busy shopping center. The woman died later at a hospital.

Authorities did not immediately release any other information about the victims.

Aaron Stephens, 44, was in the self-checkout line when he heard a single shot followed by two more bursts of gunfire before people started running for the exits.

“The employees started screaming. Customers were screaming. They were running like crazy, and I ran out too because I didn’t want to get killed,” he said.

What do you think needs to happen to stop so many random mass shootings from taking place in America?
