Suspect kills ’1 & injures 13’ before fatally shooting himself in Kruger store in Memphis.

A GUNMAN allegedly left one dead and 13 others injured before he killed himself at a grocery store this afternoon.

Officers with the Collierville Police Department responded to an active shooter at a Kroger grocery store in Collierville, Tennessee, about 30 miles near Memphis at around 1:30pm on Thursday.

Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane confirmed the suspected shooter was one of the casualties, possibly from a self-inflicted gunshot.

He described the event as “the most horrific event to happen in Collierville history.”

So far, authorities haven't shared information about the gunman, however a spokeswoman for the city of 50,000 residents told the New York Times that he worked as a "third party vendor of Kroger."

"First officers on the scene encountered multiple shoppers and employees, some shot by the suspect, according to a release by the Collierville Police Department.

One Kroger employee was saved after taking refuge on the supermarket's rooftop.

The release also confirmed that the shooter was found in the "rear of the store" with what appeared to be "a self-inflicted gunshot wound."

Workers and shoppers attempted to dodge the spray of bullets any way they could.

“We found people hiding in freezers and in locked offices,” Lane said.

“They were doing what they had been trained to do: Run, hide, fight.

"I hate that we had to do it here.”

One woman who called Kroger her workplace for 33 years, said she was working the cash register when the gunshots were fired.

”We thought it was balloons popping," Brignetta Dickerson told WREG.

"When it kept on going and we was like ‘no it’s gunshots.”

She and other employees fled to the rear.

“And, here he comes right behind us and started shooting.

"And, he kept on shooting, shooting, shooting.

"He shot one of my co-workers in the head and shot one of my customers in the stomach.”
