A member of the U.S. Air Force is responsible for the shooting of two people in a Wal-Mart in Grand Forks, North Dakota, police say.

Grand Forks Herald reports: 

A 21-year-old airman has been identified as the shooter early this morning at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in south Grand Forks.

Marcell Willis was on active duty at Grand Forks Air Force Base, according to a police statement released this afternoon.

Police are still investigating the motive behind the shooting, but there doesn’t appear to be a link between Willis and the store employees, Grand Forks Police Lt. Derik Zimmel said.

According to police, Willis entered the store, 2551 32nd Ave. S., just after 1 a.m. and shot two employees, including one fatally. He also shot but missed another Wal-Mart employee before fatally shooting himself.

A 63-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman were victims in the shooting, but police have not said the extent of the injuries. It appears one died since police have announced two people died in the incident. Altru Hospital announced one patient was in satisfactory condition.

    When is Tom Joyner and crew going to get their chance to host the annual Grammy Awards?
    They have been around long enough in the radio and music world and are well known.
    What is stopping them from getting their chance. I think the TJMS fans should demand it by now.
