Officials Former Employee Identified as Deadly Walmart Distribution Center Shooting Suspect

A former employee of a Walmart distribution center in Northern California has been identified as the alleged active shooter who was killed by police after he drove his SUV through the front door of the facility and opened fire on workers with a semiautomatic rifle, authorities said.

Police say two died, including the shooter, and four others went to the hospital with injuries ranging from minor to moderate. A man had also reported his leg being run over when the shooter rammed a vehicle into the building, but the man wasn't sure if he had been shot, dispatchers said.

Scott Thammakhanty, an employee at the distribution center, told the Redding Record-Searchlight that he heard the shooting unfold.

The ordeal was over in less than 45 minutes after officers shot the suspect in the upper chest, according to radio communications.

Hundreds of employees were working inside at the time, Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told reporters Saturday night, but majority were not near the lobby area.

The Sacramento Bee reported that a gunman drove his SUV into the building and "used an assault rifle to fire upon workers during a shift change". In that incident, Shasta County Sheriff's deputies said they received a 911 call around 11 a.m. for reports of shots fired at a home near Highway 44 and Dersch Road. Authorities do not know his relationship to the gunman.

Lane is accused of killing 45-year-old Martin Haro-Lozano and injuring four others, Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told a news conference on Saturday.

'It went on and on - I don´t even know how many times he fired, ' Thammakhanty said.

'I just know it was a lot'.

Some of the 200 workers inside the facility locked themselves in a room , employees told KHSL-TV.

Thammakhanty and others started running for their lives, and he saw people lying on the ground as he ran, he said.

Another witness told NBC that they had seen the vehicle drive into the building and burst into flames.

A auto had rammed into the distribution center, which started a fire, Crabtree said.

'It was real insane, because, you know, you can't do nothing, ' Krick said.

A motive for the shooting at the Walmart facility remained under investigation on Sunday, authorities said.

"We don't have any additional information to share at this time", Pope said.
