Collierville is about 30 miles from Memphis.

Callers reported an active shooter Thursday afternoon around 1:30. Police responded with a SWAT team, going “aisle to aisle, room to room” to rescue grocery employees hiding from the gunshots.

A floral department employee said she fled the grocery store after hearing gunshots.

“I just ran out the door. I left my purse, my keys, everything,” McDonald told USA Today.

She recalled seeing one of her fellow employees and several customers get shot while running for her life.

Students at a nearby Collierville high school were sheltered in place until police cleared the scene.

The police chief called it the “most horrific event that has occurred in Collierville's history.”
