Gunman Identified After Walmart Killing Spree

Authorities identified a gunman Thursday who allegedly shot and killed three people Wednesday at a Walmart in the suburbs of Denver, Colo.

Scott Ostrem, 47, was identified as the suspect in the shootings by Thorton police, reported Fox News. Ostrem allegedly walked into a Walmart around 6 p.m. Wednesday and shot at a crowd, killing two men and one woman, reported The Associated Press.

The suspect allegedly “nonchalantly” opened fire, say Thorton police. The police issued a nationwide extradition homicide warrant for him.

Ostrem allegedly wore a black jacket, blue jeans and a maroon shirt, according to police footage. The police released imaged on their Twitter page.

“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,” said Aaron Stephens, 44, a witness at the time of the attack.
