(AP) — A gunman who killed one person and wounded 14 others in a Tennessee grocery store didn’t appear to target anyone specifically as he rampaged through the building on a sunny Thursday afternoon.

Police say the entire shooting was over within minutes as first responders swarmed the Kroger in Collierville, a wealthy suburb outside of Memphis. Police say some of the wounded were still in critical condition Friday morning.

The shooter acted alone and died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound within a couple of minutes of police arriving. He was a third-party vendor to the store who was on site on a daily basis, identified as UK Thang. Police have not released a motive.
