A Facebook post by a Gregory Bush says he has "worked most of my life and battled mental illness throughout my life". "Thanks to the quick response of the local police department, the suspect was apprehended and our store is now secure". He said he called out to ask what was going on, and the gunman replied: "Don't shoot me".
The woman was found dead in the parking lot after attempting to call 911 during the attack, according to the Jeffersontown police.
"He (the armed man) said, 'please don't shoot and I won't shoot you, ' whites don't kill whites", Zinninger told Wave3 News. Officers then captured the suspect as he tried to flee.
There was also a shooting at a Kansas City, Mo., grocery store Tuesday night that left an adult and a child injured, KSHB reports.
The female victim was identified as Vicki Lee Jones, described by her nephew Keith Gunn as a "warm and giving" person with two sons and multiple grandchildren.
Moments later, he claimed that a man walked through the parking lot holding a gun by his side, when he pleaded with Harrell not to shoot him.
Several people have reportedly been shot at a Kroger in Kentucky.
He added that a SWAT team seized a cellphone and computers from the home in Jeffersontown where Bush was living with his parents.
But during a short verbal exchange, Bush told Zinninger's father that "whites don't kill whites".
Bush's ex-wife told authorities in a domestic violence petition in 2009 that Bush was "diagnosed paranoid" in 2003 but had stopped taking his medication.
A judge ordered Bush's weapons taken away from him as part of an emergency protective order filed by his ex-wife.
