A shooter who opened fire on Friday at a grocery store in Arkansas left the store and parked cars riddled with bullet holes as bystanders ducked for cover both indoors and in the parking lot, killing three people and wounding 10 others, authorities said. The wounded included two law enforcement officers who exchanged fire with and shot the suspect, state police said. The shooting occurred about 11:30am local time at the Mad Butcher grocery store in Fordyce, a city of about 3,200 people located 65 miles south of Little Rock. "It's tragic, our hearts are broken," Col. Mike Hagar, director of the Arkansas State Police and public safety secretary, told reporters on Friday. Police IDed the suspected shooter as 44-year-old Travis Eugene Posey of New Edinburg. He was taken to jail and charged with three counts of capital murder, while other charges are still pending.
