The suspected Walmart shooter was arrested Thursday, a day after three people were killed in Thorton, Colo., police say.
The Thorton Police Department arrested the suspect, Scott Ostrem, 47, who allegedly killed three with a handgun in a random shooting spree at 6:10 p.m., reported Buzzfeed. Ostrem allegedly strolled in “nonchalantly” and killed two men and one woman, before driving away in a red Mitsubishi Mirage.
Police then located his identity and vehicle Thursday morning.
“We are relieved that an arrest has been made in this case,” said Walmart in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

Ostrem has a “minimal criminal history” and his motive for the shooting spree is currently not known, said Victor Avila, a spokesman for the Thornton police department during a press briefing.
