Aaron Stephens, 44, was in the self-checkout line when he heard a single shot followed by two more bursts of gunfire before people started running for the exits.

Moreno, of Thornton, was a grandfather who was a longtime maintenance worker at the Auraria Higher Education Center in downtown Denver.

On Thursday morning, a SWAT team went into an apartment in unincorporated Adams County that was believed to be connected to Ostrem. He was identified after investigators scoured "lots of hours" of surveillance video and a law enforcement database, according to Avila. The victims were in the same area of the store, but it is unclear if they knew each other.

The motive was unknown, Avila said.

Court records show a resisting arrest charge against Ostrem was dismissed in 1999.

A bus full of people who were inside the store at the time of the shooting were taken on an RTD bus to the Thornton Police department, which is just to the south of the store.

An anonymous tipster spotted Ostrem's vehicle not far from his apartment at around 8 a.m. Thursday and notified police, who Avila says were nearly immediately on his tail.

Police say they've arrested a man suspected of walking into a suburban Denver Walmart and immediately opening fire with a handgun, killing two men and a woman Wednesday night.

Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that 47-year-old Scott Ostrem had a minor criminal history, but Avila didn't elaborate.

After an hour of fire, Thornton Police tweeted that the place is out of danger now when the Walmart was surrounded by police and fire crews.

"The employees started screaming".
