BEAVERCREEK, Ohio – A shooting at a Walmart in Beavercreek, Ohio, on Monday evening left four people injured before the gunman reportedly took his own life, according to police.
The incident occurred around 8:35 p.m. when the gunman entered the Walmart and began firing a gun, said Beavercreek Police. The man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, and responding officers did not discharge their weapons.
The identity of the suspect has not been released, and the conditions of the four injured individuals remain unknown at this time, said Beavercreek Police Capt. Scott Molnar.
“We have no motive yet, no information on what he may have been thinking, or anything else,” Molnar told reporters at the scene. “We’re still looking into it. It’s very, very early in the investigation.”
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the FBI, and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting with the investigation, Molnar said.
In a statement, Walmart expressed heartbreak over the tragic event and stated, “This remains a developing situation, and we’re working closely with investigators on the scene.”
Beavercreek, a city of approximately 46,000 people, is located east of Dayton.
This is a developing story and more details will be provided as the investigation progresses.
