Shooting at a grocery store in USA leaves three people dead, 10 hurt

A shooting incident at a grocery store in Fordyce, U.S. state of Arkansas, left at least three people dead and 10 others injured, police said on Saturday.

The wounded people included two cops.

Arkansas State Police (ASP) named the suspected shooter in today’s Fordyce grocery store shooting as Travis Eugene Posey, 44, of New Edinburg.

Posey will be charged with three counts of Capital Murder. Additional charges are pending.

"He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries after exchanging gunfire with law enforcement, released to ASP custody, and transported to the Ouachita County Detention Center,"  Arkansas State Police said in a statement.

ASP’s Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday, June 21, 2024, at approximately 11:38 a.m. at the Mad Butcher grocery store.

At least 234 mass shootings have taken place in the United States in 2024, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive, which, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as one in which four or more people are shot, excluding the shooter.

Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders reacted to the development and posted on X: " I have been briefed on the tragic shooting in Fordyce, and I’m in constant contact with State Police at the scene. I am thankful to law enforcement and first responders for their quick and heroic action to save lives. My prayers are with the victims and all those impacted by this horrific incident."
