WAVE 3 News confirms the shooting happened in the 500 block of North 35th Street in Louisville’s Portland neighborhood just after 6 p.m.
Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Steve Conrad said in a news conference that the suspect came out of the store, firing a shot at officers. Conrad says police returned fire, killing the suspect.
According to WAVE, the suspect has been identified as 32-year-old Shelby Gazaway. A deputy coroner with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says Gazaway died during the shootout with police.
Before Chief Conrad spoke, multiple witnesses had told WAVE 3 News that two people started arguing in Kroger store, before the shooting.
This comes as Kroger is already facing a lawsuit from last year’s deadly shooting at its Jeffersontown location in Louisville.
