Ostrem reportedly killed three people inside the Walmart, which is about 10 miles north of Denver.

Two men were killed and a woman later died after being taken to the hospital. Two other people were injured.

CNN reported:

Scott Ostrem, 47, was taken into custody Thursday morning. But it’s still not clear why he may have opened fire near a cash register at the Walmart Supercenter Wednesday night, killing two men and a woman.

“We believe as of right now that the shooting was random,” Thornton Police Officer Victor Avila said.
