Officers arriving on the scene found the suspect dead, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  Old Bridge Police say the suspect, who was also working the last shift, left the store briefly around 3:30am, and reentered the store firing his weapon.

(Bruce Kaplan) “Two of the employees were shot and killed.  The other were able to hide and escape.”

Old Bridge Police say a dozen or so employees were inside at the time, finishing up the night shift and getting ready to open the store.  An AK-47 with multiple magazines and a handgun were found.
