Gunman Shoots Two Women Dead In Indiana Supermarket

He was expressing his mental state through his Second Amendment rights. Isn't that the only motive he needs? Seriously, at what point will people wake up?

(CNN) -- A gunman killed two women inside an Indiana grocery store Wednesday night before police rushed to the scene and gunned him down.

The tragic scene played out in a sprawling grocery store in Elkhart, Indiana.

Officers were called to the scene just after 10 p.m. and found an armed man in the store, according to Indiana State Police Trooper Brooks Shirk. The man also fired at officers.

Officers fatally shot the gunman, police told CNN affiliate WXIN.

They found the bodies of two women aisles apart inside the grocery store, both of them shot by the gunman, Shirk said. One of the women was a shopper, the other was an employee.
It was unclear whether he knew the victims or if there was any connection between the three, Shirk said.

Police said the man used a semi-automatic handgun. A knife was also recovered at the scene.
Investigators scoured through a huge crime scene overnight, police said, as shell casings and debris stretched throughout the store.

The names of the gunman and victims were not released. Neither was a motive.
