Palm Beach County investigators is releasing new information on Friday afternoon about a deadly triple shooting inside a Publix store in Royal Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is holding a news conference and providing a timeline of the tragedy.
The sheriff’s office said Timothy Wall, 55, of Royal Palm Beach, gunned down a 69-year-old grandmother and her one-year-old grandson on Thursday near the produce area of the store, located in The Crossroads shopping center at 1180 Royal Palm Beach Boulevard.
Wall then shot and killed himself. PBSO released a photo of him on Friday afternoon.
“There is no known motive or relationship between the gunman and the victims,” PBSO spokeswoman Teri Barbera said in a news release. “However, detectives are still investigating.”
Shoppers on Friday returned to the store to pick up any belongings they left behind during Thursday’s chaotic shooting.
Meanwhile, a memorial for the victims is growing outside the store with stuffed animals, balloons, and other mementos. The victims’ names will not be released, authorities said.
The Publix will be closed to the public until further notice, according to company spokeswoman Maria Brous.
Brous said Publix is working closely with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on the investigation, and the store has been deep-cleaned, disinfected, and redesigned.
“The tragedy that occurred at our store yesterday for the community, for our Publix family, and for the families of the victims, our hearts and thoughts are with them,” Brous said.
