OLD BRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — An official says a New Jersey supermarket employee killed two people at the store early Friday and then fatally shot himself.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said the 23-year-old man opened fire on employees he saw when he walked into the Pathmark store in Old Bridge, about 25 miles from Manhattan. The store’s front windows were shattered by gunfire.

Officials said at a news conference that police fired no rounds.

Authorities said 16 shots were fired and an AK-47, extra ammunition and a handgun were found at the scene. The motive is being investigated.
