'Multiple Parties Down' After Shooting at Colorado Walmart, Police Say

  • Multiple parties down in shooting at Thornton Walmart

Scott Ostrem, 47 was arrested on Thursday morning, about 14 hours after he fled the store in a vehicle.

Colorado authorities have arrested the man who police say nonchalantly walked into a Walmart and immediately opened fire with a handgun, killing two men and a woman Wednesday night. The third victim - a woman - was transported to the hospital, where she died. "We don't know exactly what the motive of the person was, but it was certainly a awful act". I just told them 'What's going on?' and they were like 'They're shooting! "As witnesses stated, the person came in and just shot towards a group". There was also a brief lockdown at a nearby medical center.

Wal-Mart customer Aaron Stephens, 44, of Thornton told Reuters he was buying groceries at a self-checkout stand when he heard gunshots and ricocheting bullets.

"At first I thought it was a firecracker", he said.


"The employees started screaming".

Jay Quawrn Thompson, an 18-year-old Walmart employee, was working the back of the store when he hear the shots. "And I went out with everybody else".

Guadalupe Perez was inside with her son Erick. She recalled hearing someone yell, "Let's go".

She added: "You see all these things in the news and you go through it, it's scary". "But thank God we're okay and nothing happened to us".
