Martin's Grocery Store where 2 slain 'grateful' for police

ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — The CEO of a company that owns a northern Indiana grocery store where a gunman fatally shot two women says he's "forever grateful" officers responded quickly and killed the gunman.

Martin's Super Markets CEO Rob Bartels says that officers' quick response to Wednesday night's shooting at the Elkhart store saved lives.

He says the Elkhart store will remain closed Thursday and the South Bend-based supermarket chain will be offering employees counseling to help them deal with the workplace slayings.

Bartels says the company and its employees are saddened by the tragedy.

State police say the 22-year-old gunman used a handgun to fatally shoot a 20-year-old employee and a 44-year-old shopper. He was killed by police after he pointed a gun at a third person.
