Thirteen people were shot — and one of them killed — during a mass shooting at a Kroger supermarket in Collierville, Tennessee, according to local police.

Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane said the suspected shooter has also died at the scene. Officers who responded to the shooting at roughly 1:30 p.m. found people hiding in freezers, he added.

“I’ve been involved in this for 34 years and I’ve never seen anything like this,” Lane said, calling it “the most horrific event that’s happened in Collierville history.”

Baptist Memorial Hospital in Collierville confirmed to Insider that one victim is being treated. Regional One Hospital told Action News 5 that it had also received patients, and FOX 13 confirmed that 9 shooting victims are at the hospital, with 4 in critical condition and 5 in stable condition.

A lockdown was briefly put in place at Collierville High, but authorities lifted it after they arrived on the scene.

The Memphis Police Department was also on the scene.

Kroger released a statement on Thursday, and the company offered, “thoughts, prayers and support to the individuals and families of victims during this difficult time.”
