Witnesses describe chaotic scene of deadly Publix shooting

Florida supermarket shooting leaves three people dead including the suspected shooter

Detectives were investigating a shooting that left three people dead in a Publix supermarket in Royal Palm Beach on Thursday morning, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.

At 11:39 am, lawmakers responded to the shooting and found that three people, including the shooter, had been shot dead.

The department says that the scene is not active and that the shooter was one of the deceased people in the store.

Police received reports of a shooting near the grocery store, according to a representative for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

"This was not an active shooter situation", the sheriff's office said without providing further details. The names and ages of the victims have not been revealed yet. The detective is at the scene investigating the trigger for the shooting.


The school district placed Crestwood Middle School on a temporary lockdown as a result of the shooting incident.

Deputies discovered three people, one adult male, one adult female, and one youngster, dead from gunshot wounds when they arrived.

Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay asked for thoughts and prayers for the victims.

"I thank God for being with me, because what if I went to Publix?" I just can't believe this has happened inside the store. All additional questions should be forwarded to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. "The shooter is also deceased, PBSO said."@GovRonDeSantis - I ask again.

Joey Mendoza, 62, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that he was pulling into the store's parking lot when he saw the large police presence surrounding the building.
