Corona Police Department officers responded to what was reported as an active shooter situation at a Costco in Corona at about 7:45 p.m. Friday.

The officer fired his weapon, killing 32-year-old Kenneth French and injuring two of French's family members, Kouroubacalis said in a statement. Our officer suffered minor injuries in the incident and was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released. His child was not injured.

Lt. Jeff Edwards of the Corona police told reporters just after the incident that police believed the shooting resulted from an argument.

Some people were also injured trying to flee the store, Edwards said. Because the investigation continues to be on-going, the names of eager persons are no longer being released at this time.

"I'm posting this picture because the stories on social media have made them out to be the suspects, and the off duty cop the victim", Shureih wrote.

The shooter opened fire Friday night at the store in Corona, about 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) east of downtown Los Angeles.

Aurtis Wilson, a retired U.S. Marine, told the Press Enterprise that he heard the argument and "next thing I know I hear seven shots".

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement Saturday afternoon that it has launched its own investigation of the incident.
