Supermarket workers killed with single shots

Posted: September 04, 2012

Two New Jersey supermarket employees killed during a rampage by a co-worker Friday died from single gunshot wounds, according to autopsies performed Saturday.

Cristina LoBrutto, 18, and Bryan Breen, 24, were shot at a Pathmark store in Old Bridge Township by 23-year-old Terence Tyler, who then shot himself in the head. All were pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities were investigating a possible motive, but relatives said that Tyler - who once tweeted about killing "everyone I see" - was discharged from the Marine Corps two years ago after suffering from depression and that he had never gotten over his mother's death about five years ago.

Tyler left his job at the supermarket at 3:30 a.m., then returned with a handgun and assault rifle. Dressed in camouflage gear, he fired more than 16 rounds.
