1 16 0

The shooter who killed one person and injured 15 at a Kroger supermarket in Collierville, Tennessee before turning the gun on himself has been identified by authorities as 29-year-old Uk Thang.

Thang was a third-party vendor who worked in the store, Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane said at a press conference on Friday morning. Lane declined to name Thang on live TV, but shared his details with reporters after the cameras stopped rolling.

“I’m not going to give him notoriety in this platform,” Lane said. “We’re just not going to do it in this venue.”

No motive has yet been given.

Juanita Ford, 66, lives one floor above the suspect, and was ordered to vacate her residence when police arrived at the complex yesterday to search the suspect........
