Terence S. Tyler armed with AK-47 shoots dead two colleagues including 18-year-old girl who was covering shift for a friend

An ex-marine dressed in camouflage and armed with an AK-47 opened fire in a New Jersey Pathmark store this morning and fatally shot two co-workers - one of which was an 18-year-old girl who in a terrible twist of fate was covering a shift for a friend.

Police said 23-year-old Terence S. Tyler, argued with colleagues earlier on Friday morning, left the Old Bridge store for his car, returned around 4 a.m and killed Cristina Lobrutto and Bryan Green, 24, who were stacking shelves before the scheduled 6 a.m. opening.

Employees told police they saw Tyler coming towards the entrance of the popular supermarket with his guns and locked the door - but the shooter shot out two windows, walked inside and killed his co-workers and then himself.

A neighbour of Cristina was left distraught by the death.

'Why does an 18-year-old have to lose her life,' said Carolyn Anders. 'Heart of gold, always smile on her face.'

The three dead had all been working the night shift at the Old Bridge Pathmark said Middlesex County Prosectuor Bruce Kaplan at a news conference on Friday.

One law enforcement official said that Tyler entered into an argument with unspecified other co-workers and at around 3.30 a.m. left the store, got into his car and drove away. Read More
