Suspect in Colorado Walmart Shooting Is Arrested, ID'd

Suspect arrested in Colorado Wal Mart shooting                        CBS Denver

Police in Thornton, Colorado have arrested a suspect in Wednesday night's shooting inside a Walmart that resulted in the deaths of two men and a woman.

Mr Avila said a man nonchalantly entered the store and fired a handgun into a group of people before fleeing in a auto.

The shooting comes a day after a man in New York City allegedly killed eight people on a Manhattan bike path before police officers were able to apprehend and take him into custody.

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

The shooting appears random and there are no indications that it was an act of terror, Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said. "Just to be able to decipher what exactly we had".

Forty-eight witnesses were taken from the Walmart to a nearby police building before they were released, according to RTD.

It's unclear if the attack is terrorism-related, police said, although they believe it is not.

Stephens said he did not see where the shooting had come from and did not see anyone struck by bullets.

Copter4 flew over the scene of Ostrem's arrest.

Video broadcast from CBS affiliate KCNC-TV showed the suspect being handcuffed by police against the side of an SUV as Federal Bureau of Investigation agents carrying rifles and wearing body armor looked on. "That's truly what took the longest amount of time".

"What truly occurred is, again, we had hundreds of people self-evacuate from a large establishment", he said Thursday morning. Avila says he doesn't know how many rounds were fired. A SWAT team used a flash bang as distraction before making the arrest, Officer Victor Avila said during a press conference Thursday morning.

Ragan Dickens, a Walmart spokesman, said the company is working with investigators.
