The shooting left one man dead and at least two others injured, including an off-duty Los Angeles police officer, authorities said. Corona Police Officer Tobias Kouroubacalis said Saturday the off-duty officer was part of “an officer-involved shooting,” but declined to provide further details, citing an investigation. “I can’t confirm there was more than one shooter,” he said. The officer, from the Southwest Division, was hospitalized but later released, authorities said. Identities of a suspect or victims were not available as of early Saturday afternoon. Nor were details about what may have led to the shooting.

They piled $4.99 roasted chickens, packages with 30 rolls of toilet paper and 3-pound tubs of cream cheese into their carts.  And of course, they snacked on food samples. There was no indication that a man had died from a gunshot wound near the produce section the night before. A greeter, asked if the employees were OK, said yes. The chaotic situation, with panicked customers fleeing or hiding in the store, was “stabilized” as of 9:09 p.m. on Friday, according to authorities. Corona police secured numerous personal items from shoppers who had to exit the store quickly, the police department said. Anyone looking to get their belongings back was urged to call 951-817-5788 to arrange for pickup with proper identification. Shopping bags or other items can be retrieved from Costco by calling 951-279-1190, police said. On Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m., a security guard stood outside the store, turning away customers. Becky Mendoza of Norco was able to pick up a cake she had ordered for her first granddaughter’s baby shower that was being celebrated Saturday. Mendoza said a Costco employee called her to say she could come to the front of the store Saturday morning and that she would be handed the cake, which reads “Welcome Baby Willis.” Costco did not charge Mendoza for the cake. The store opened two hours later. Outside in the parking lot, some customers said they were unaware of the shooting.

(Photo by Will Lester, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin/SCNG)   Police are saying the deadly gunfire that erupted in a crowded Costco in Corona on Friday night included an “officer involved shooting,” but they are not saying who else might have fired a weapon. The shooting left one man dead and at least two others injured, including an off-duty Los Angeles police officer, authorities said. Corona Police Officer Tobias Kouroubacalis said Saturday the off-duty officer was part of “an officer-involved shooting,” but declined to provide further details, citing an investigation. “I can’t confirm there was more than one shooter,” he said. The officer, from the Southwest Division, was hospitalized but later released, authorities said. Identities of a suspect or victims were not available as of early Saturday afternoon. Nor were details about what may have led to the shooting. See also: Police: 1 dead, at least 2 injured in shooting at Costco store in Corona A Costco employee rolled open the metal door at 11:48 a.m. Saturday, more than two hours after the scheduled 9:30 a.m. opening, and customers streamed in. They piled $4.99 roasted chickens, packages with 30 rolls of toilet paper and 3-pound tubs of cream cheese into their carts.  And of course, they snacked on food samples. There was no indication that a man had died from a gunshot wound near the produce section the night before. A greeter, asked if the employees were OK, said yes. The chaotic situation, with panicked customers fleeing or hiding in the store, was “stabilized” as of 9:09 p.m. on Friday, according to authorities. Corona police secured numerous personal items from shoppers who had to exit the store quickly, the police department said. Anyone looking to get their belongings back was urged to call 951-817-5788 to arrange for pickup with proper identification. Shopping bags or other items can be retrieved from Costco by calling 951-279-1190, police said. On Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m., a security guard stood outside the store, turning away customers. Becky Mendoza of Norco was able to pick up a cake she had ordered for her first granddaughter’s baby shower that was being celebrated Saturday. Mendoza said a Costco employee called her to say she could come to the front of the store Saturday morning and that she would be handed the cake, which reads “Welcome Baby Willis.” Costco did not charge Mendoza for the cake. The store opened two hours later. Outside in the parking lot, some customers said they were unaware of the shooting.

The shooting left one man dead and at least two others injured, including an off-duty Los Angeles police officer, authorities said. Corona Police Officer Tobias Kouroubacalis said Saturday the off-duty officer was part of “an officer-involved shooting,” but declined to provide further details, citing an investigation. “I can’t confirm there was more than one shooter,” he said. The officer, from the Southwest Division, was hospitalized but later released, authorities said. Identities of a suspect or victims were not available as of early Saturday afternoon. Nor were details about what may have led to the shooting.

They piled $4.99 roasted chickens, packages with 30 rolls of toilet paper and 3-pound tubs of cream cheese into their carts.  And of course, they snacked on food samples. There was no indication that a man had died from a gunshot wound near the produce section the night before. A greeter, asked if the employees were OK, said yes. The chaotic situation, with panicked customers fleeing or hiding in the store, was “stabilized” as of 9:09 p.m. on Friday, according to authorities. Corona police secured numerous personal items from shoppers who had to exit the store quickly, the police department said. Anyone looking to get their belongings back was urged to call 951-817-5788 to arrange for pickup with proper identification. Shopping bags or other items can be retrieved from Costco by calling 951-279-1190, police said. On Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m., a security guard stood outside the store, turning away customers. Becky Mendoza of Norco was able to pick up a cake she had ordered for her first granddaughter’s baby shower that was being celebrated Saturday. Mendoza said a Costco employee called her to say she could come to the front of the store Saturday morning and that she would be handed the cake, which reads “Welcome Baby Willis.” Costco did not charge Mendoza for the cake. The store opened two hours later. Outside in the parking lot, some customers said they were unaware of the shooting.

CORONA, Calif. (AP) — Shoppers and employees have described terror and chaos as shots rang out inside a busy California warehouse store as a gunman in an argument near the freezer section opened fire — killing one man, wounding two and sparking a stampede. Terrified shoppers ran outside the store and tried to hide during the shootout Friday night in the city of Corona east of Los Angeles as families stocked up for the weekend. The wounded included an off-duty Los Angeles police officer who was treated for minor injuries and released from a hospital, Los Angeles Police officer Greg Kraft said Saturday. The suspect was not identified but told officers at the scene after he was taken into custody that he had been injured, though no details were immediately available Saturday on how he was hurt. Police swarmed the store after the gunshots rang out and witnesses told KCAL-TV that a man with a Mohawk haircut argued with someone near a freezer section when he pulled a gun and fired at least six times. The man involved in the argument was killed and two other people were wounded, Corona police Lt. Jeff Edwards said. In statement issued early Saturday, Corona police said the conditions of those injured were unknown. The injured gunman was taken to a hospital, Edwards said. No identities were immediately released. Police said the name of the deceased won’t be released until the Riverside County coroner notifies family. Shrieks from inside the store were heard on video shot by shopper Nikki Tate, who had stopped by the store with her daughter to pick up steaks for Father’s Day. “Walked back to the meat section and just immediately heard about six or seven shots and got on the ground,” she told KNBC in Los Angeles . “Didn’t know if this was another mass shooting.” In the video, her daughter says, “Mommy, we need to go.” The two huddled together. Christina Colis told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that she was in the produce area when she heard six to seven shots and hid with other shoppers in a refrigerated produce room. She said her mother saw people injured on the floor. “I thought maybe someone dropped a bottle of wine, but then I kept hearing shots,” shopper Will Lungo told the Press-Enterprise newspaper. “An employee came in and helped us out through the emergency exit.” Witnesses told KCAL-TV that shoppers and employees rushed to the exits. The station reported that more than 100 people were outside the store at one point. Left behind inside the store were purses, cellphones and backpacks from panicked shoppers, Corona police said.
