Police: Gunman threatened others at Elkhart store

Elkhart — Authorities say a gunman walked around a northern Indiana grocery store for about 30 minutes before he fatally shot two women and threatened at least two other people.

State police Sgt. Trent Smith says 22-year-old Shawn Walter Bair of Elkhart first shot a 20-year-old store employee as she was stocking shelves at a Martin's Super Market in Elkhart late Wednesday.

Smith says Bair then walked to another aisle when he exchanged words with another employee who he shot at and missed while she ran away. He later shot a 44-year-old shopper several aisles away.

Smith says Bair had the store manager on his knees and was pointing a gun at him just before two Elkhart officers shot him.

The identities of the women killed haven't yet been released.
