Tennessee supermarket shooting leaves one dead and a dozen injured

Eva Deschamps / September 24, 2021

Authorities were alerted to gunfire at a Kroger chain supermarket in the Memphis suburb of Collierville at 1:30 p.m. local time.
 
When we got there, several people had been hit, said Dale Lane, Collierville police chief. Twelve of them were taken to hospital and one died, he said. The shooter killed himself by turning the gun on himself.
 
The Collierville police chief called the scene terrifying. I've never seen anything like this in my 34-year career, he lamented.
 
We found people hiding in freezers, and in closed offices, they were doing what they were trained to do: running, hiding, fighting, Lane said.
 
The Memphis police announced that they had gone to the scene to assist.
 
Shootings of this type, particularly in schools, supermarkets or places of worship, are a recurring scourge of American society that successive governments have been powerless to curb.
