Original: A shooting that left two people dead at a Kentucky Kroger might have been racially motivated. He was being held in police custody Thursday and charged with two counts of murder and 10 counts of wanton endangerment, the Courier-Journal said.

Bush arrived at the First Baptist Church of Jeffersontown shortly after Wednesday service concluded.

Pastor Keith Tyler, of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Lexington, questions what Bush meant to do at the church.

"Don't shoot me. I won't shoot you".

Video taken by a store owner showed the suspect wandering around the parking lot as bystanders shouted his location to police. He said ultimately, the safety of his congregants is up to the neighborhood.

They said the "hypotheses" proposed so far in the Saudi investigation need to be backed by facts to be considered credible. She also reiterated the federal government's call for a thorough investigation in collaboration with Turkish officials.

Rogers also said the suspect, 51-year-old Gregory Bush, apparently does have a history of mental illness as news outlets have reported. She said she would appoint a public defender to represent him in court.

The female victim was identified as Vicki Lee Jones, described by her nephew Keith Gunn as a "warm and giving" person with two sons and multiple grandchildren.

Police wrote in the report that Bush's parents were "terrified of (his) unpredictable behavior".

Fischer said Thursday he's "sick and heartbroken" that two people were shot to death, and says the tragedy "hit close to home".

Eric Deacon, who identified himself as an EMT, told The Associated Press that he was in the self-checkout lane of the store when he heard the first shot, in the pharmacy.

Years ago in a family court hearing, Bush threatened his ex-wife and punched a deputy sheriff.

In the store, Bush allegedly "pulled a pistol from his waistband and shot [a man] in the rear of the head and again multiple times as he lay on the floor", according to an arrest reported cited by the Courier-Journal. When deputies tried to subdue him, he fought off attempts to handcuff him and he punched a deputy twice. Bush also was marked as a "suicide risk" on the arrest sheet, which noted that his ex-wife had a protective order against him.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the Vicki Jones and Maurice Stallard whose lives were cut short in this senseless act - and especially want to remember the grandson who was with his grandfather at the time of the shooting", said Jeffersontown Mayor Bill Dieruf in a statement.

In a 2003 incident, Bush was charged with menacing for following a 15-year-old into a movie theater bathroom and putting his hands around her waist. He's recorded driving out of the lot while an officer chases after him on foot.

He said that both men had their guns drawn, but the shooter "said that he wouldn't shoot if he didn't shoot, so my dad just stayed there, and then the guy took off down the parking lot". The report says Bush then reholstered his gun, walked outside and killed a woman in the parking lot.
