Ex-Marine kills 2, self at NJ supermarket

OLD BRIDGE, N.J. (AP) -

An ex-Marine who had suffered from depression and once tweeted about killing "everyone I see" opened fire in camouflage gear at a New Jersey supermarket, gunning down two co-workers before he killed himself.

Middlesex County prosecutors say 23-year-old Terence Tyler left his night clerk shift at a Pathmark store in Old Bridge Township around 3:30 a.m., drove off and returned 20 minutes later to the closed store with a handgun and an assault rifle.

About 12 to 14 workers were still there.

Authorities say Tyler fired more than 16 rounds from his rifle -- shooting at an employee standing outside and blowing out the front windows as he entered the store. He shot at five other workers in an aisle, killing 18-year-old Christina LoBrutto and 24-year-old Bryan Breen.
