3 dead in shooting at Publix Supermarket in Florida

A gunman shot and killed a toddler and his grandmother before fatally shooting himself inside a Publix grocery store in Palm Beach County, Fla., on Thursday morning, the authorities said.

Deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office found their bodies near the produce section when they entered the store, in Royal Palm Beach, just before 11:40 a.m., a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.

The names of the victims and the gunman were not immediately released.

The child, a boy, would have turned 2 later this month, said Teri Barbera, the sheriff’s spokeswoman.

“We don’t have any idea who the male is at this time,” Ms. Barbera said, referring to the gunman.

Later on Thursday, the authorities said there was no known relationship between the gunman and the two victims. A motive for the shooting still had not been determined.
