APEX, N.C. (AP) – Police say a 59-year-old woman has been shot to death inside the store where she worked and the shooter has killed himself.
Apex police Capt. Ann Stephens said Guadalupe Rosas was killed Sunday at her register at the front of Super Target in the town just 15 miles west of Raleigh. Stephens said the shooter killed himself when confronted by officers.
Stephens said the shooter’s name is being withheld until next of kin can be notified. She said Rosas and the shooter had had a romantic relationship that ended about five years ago.
Investigators do not know what prompted the shooting.
Stephens says about 150 customers and employees were evacuated from the store and four people suffered minor injuries as they rushed to get out.
