    Three dead at Florida supermarket include grandmother, grandson

    ROYAL PALM BEACH, FLORIDA (AP) — A man fatally shot a grandmother and her one-year-old grandson inside a Florida supermarket before killing himself, authorities said, causing dozens to flee the store in panic.

    The shooting happened shortly after 11.30am on Thursday at a Publix located in a strip mall that also houses small shops and restaurants.

    Authorities initially said the shooter and the victims may have known each other. A later update from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said there was no known motive or relationship between the suspect and the victims, but detectives were still investigating.

    The sheriff’s office identified the suspect as Timothy J Wall, 55, of Royal Palm Beach.

    The names of the grandmother and her grandson won’t be released. Their family invoked Marsy’s Law, the sheriff’s office said, which allows victims of crimes to block information that could be used to locate or harass them or their families from being made public.

    The sheriff’s office said the supermarket was closed until today.

    Royal Palm Beach is a middle-class suburb of 40,000 residents, about 15 miles inland from Palm Beach.
