Walmart triple slaying suspect is identified as manhunt continues

The manhunt continues for a Colorado man who coolly walked into a Walmart, began shooting and killed three people.

Scott Ostrem, 47, was identified Thursday morning as that suspect, local media reported.

He was caught on surveillance video walking into the superstore’s Thornton, Colo., location around 6:30 p.m. local time Wednesday before he started shooting.

Police described the shooting as random, and Ostrem quickly fled in a red Mitsubishi Mirage with Colorado plate numbered 882 TQB.
