A gunman opened fire at a Walmart in southwest Ohio on Monday evening, wounding four people and then apparently killing himself, police said.
The man “walked into the Walmart in Beavercreek around 8:35 p.m. Monday and began firing a gun,” police said said in a statement on social media.
The gunman apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and none of the responding officers fired their weapons, the police statement said.
The suspect’s identity was not immediately released. The condition of the four injured people is unknown, police said.
“We have no motive yet, no information about what he might have been thinking or anything else,” Beavercreek Police Capt. Scott Molnar told reporters at the scene. “We are still checking it. It’s still very, very early in the investigation.”
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on scene and assisted, Molnar said.
Walmart said it was heartbroken by the violence. “This continues to be an evolving situation and we are working closely with investigators on site,” a company spokesperson said.
Beavercreek is a city of around 46,000 people east of Dayton.
