Oregon shooting at grocery store leaves three dead, including gunman

A shooting at a Safeway grocery store on Sunday night in Bend, Oregon, left three people dead, 

including the suspected attacker, reigniting pleas from the public for government leaders to take more action against gun violence.

Police in Bend said the shooter – whose name hasn’t been released – came from a nearby residential area and began firing as he crossed through the Safeway parking lot.

One person was shot near the entrance and died at the scene, police said.

Another was shot and killed inside the store, and police arrived to find the gunman dead in the store as well.

Bend police spokeswoman Sheila Miller said one victim, a Safeway employee who was identified as Donald Ray Surrett Jr, 66, fought off the shooter in the produce aisle, possibly preventing more deaths.
