JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. (AP) — The Latest on the fatal shooting at a Kentucky grocery store (all times local):

10 a.m.

An arrest citation says a man charged with fatally shooting two people at a Kentucky grocery store shot the first victim in the back of the head.

The document says 51-year-old Gregory Bush walked to the back of the Louisville Kroger store, pulled a gun from his waistband and shot a man in the back of the head, and then kept shooting the man multiple times “as he was down on the floor.”

Police say Bush then re-holstered his gun as he exited the store, and once outside, he shot another victim, a woman, several times.

Police say Bush then encountered an armed civilian and the two fired at each other in the parking lot. Neither were injured. Bush is charged with two counts of murder and 10 counts of wanton endangerment.

Police in Kentucky aren’t yet saying whether they have determined a motive for the fatal shooting of two people at a Kroger grocery store on the outskirts of Louisville.

Jeffersontown Police Chief Sam Rogers says one man and one woman died in Wednesday’s shooting.

Rogers has not identified the male suspect or what charges he may face.

Rogers says the man fired multiple rounds at the man inside the store, and shot the female victim multiple times out in the parking lot.

A citizen armed with a gun engaged the shooter in the parking lot, but the suspect was able to flee before police captured him on a nearby road.
