Two of the victims in the shooting at a Florida Publix supermarket Thursday were identified as a grandmother and her toddler grandson — as shoppers detailed the terrifying moment the gunman opened fire.
Juan Guardia was in the Palm Beach supermarket’s deli section when he heard gunfire and employees screaming near the produce aisle at around 11:30 a.m., according to the Palm Beach Post.
“I heard, ‘They’re shooting!’ A woman Publix worker said, ‘Run! Shooting!’” Guardia told the paper. “I was scared. It’s sad because everything happened fast. Everyone was running. Some employees were crying.”
Customer Ron Glassman said he had just parked in the shopping plaza, and was headed to another store when about 50 customers came running out of the Publix, yelling, “There’s a shooter, there’s a shooter! Don’t go in there!”
