COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a shooting at a Tennessee grocery store east of Memphis has left one person dead and wounded 12 others, and the shooter was later found dead.

Chief Dale Lane of the Collierville Police Department said the shooting happened Thursday afternoon in that community about 30 miles east of Memphis.

He said 13 people in all were shot and 12 of them were taken to hospitals, some with very serious injuries.

Lane said police received a call about 1:30 p.m. about the shooting and flooded the area within minutes, finding multiple people shot on entering the building.

He said police SWAT team officers went aisle to aisle to take people to safety inside the store. He says the shooter was subsequently found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
