3 KILLED IN STACK-SLAYINGS

A man who said he was a former cop with nothing to lose herded six people to the back of a grocery store, stacked them by twos and began shooting and stabbing. Three people were killed and two badly hurt.

The one person who wasn't hurt in Sunday's attack at the Be-Lo grocery store was on the bottom of a stack, said Bertie County Sheriff Wallace Perry.

"He was lucky," Perry said yesterday. "He felt the trauma when the man on top of him was shot."

Police said the motive was robbery, although investigators declined to say what was taken. They were searching for a 20- to 30-year-old man.

The attacker, armed with a .45-caliber pistol, told his captives "he had nothing to lose, he was a former police officer, he had been fired," Perry said.
