Shoppers fleeing a Florida Publix store after an armed man opened fire Thursday – killing a woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter before turning the gun on themselves – had the chance to return to the scene Friday morning to retrieve their belongings, police said.
The Public Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) allowed all shoppers who were in the Royal Palm Beach Publix store during Thursday morning to return anytime between 6 p.m. 9 and noon Friday to collect their personal belongings, the department announced on Twitter.

The identities of the victims are not released as the family has invoked Marsy’s law, which prevents law enforcement from publishing information related to victims of crime.
The sheriff’s office initially said investigators believed the shooter and the victims knew each other. Later Thursday, a PBSO spokesman said there was no “known motive or relationship between the shooter and the victims.”
