Suspect in Colorado Walmart Shooting Is Arrested, ID'd

The suspect in the Walmart shooting

A man suspected of killing three people at a Colorado Walmart on Wednesday evening (local time) has been arrested.

Thornton Police say two men were killed and a woman later died at the hospital after a lone gunman opened fire near the front of the Walmart at 9901 N. Grant St.

Thornton police say 47-year-old Scott Ostrem was arrested Thursday morning, about 14 hours after he fled the store in a auto.

Thornton Police named the suspect Thursday morning as 47-year-old Scott Ostrem. Police also released a second photograph of a red hatchback they believed Ostrem fled in. Avila says that information will come from the coroner's office once their families have been notified.

Thornton Police didn't reveal any details spontaneously neither about the circumstances of the shooting nor the people who were responsible for the shooting. Police had issued a warrant for his arrest the night before, and received an anonymous tip for his whereabouts. The victims were in the same area of the store, but it is unclear if they knew each other.

"Let's get this guy as soon as possible", said Avila.

An anonymous tipster spotted Ostrem's vehicle not far from his apartment at around 8 a.m. Thursday and notified police, who Avila says were nearly immediately on his tail. Avila said there was no indication the shooting was an act of terrorism and no one had claimed responsibility.

"The employees started screaming and the customers started screaming" as people began to flee, he said.

According to Aaron Stephens, a witness who spoke to the Denver Post, he was in the self-checkout line when he heard a single shot fired, followed by more bursts of gunfire.
