What they do know is that it is not believed to have been an act of terrorism.

52 year old Pamela Marques of Denver and 66 year old Carlos Moreno and 26 year old Victor Vasquez were the shooters victims.

He says a motive for the shooting is unknown.

Colorado authorities have identified a man who police say nonchalantly walked into a Walmart and immediately opened fire, killing two men and a woman Wednesday night. The call came into dispatch at 6:10 p.m.to report a shooting inside the Grant Street Walmart location, police said. An unidentified woman was taken to a hospital but later was pronounced dead. Thornton police said a nationwide extradition homicide warrant has been issued for the 47-year-old Ostrem.

The Thornton Police Department said on Twitter that Scott Ostrem, 47, had been taken into custody. Thornton Police said they are now reviewing security camera footage and interviewing witnesses "for assistance with suspect (s) description/info". He was identified after investigators scoured "lots of hours" of surveillance video and a law enforcement database, according to Avila.

Forecasters expect a warm New England winter. But what about precipitation?
Mike Halpert , deputy director of NOAA's Climate Prediction Center , said it would be surprising if this winter is as warm. Remember last winter? Get ready for version 2.0, if the predictions from NOAA's annual winter weather forecast come true.

The shooting appears random and there are no indications that it was an act of terror, Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said.

Thornton police are searching for 47-year-old Scott Ostrem, who they say fled in a vehicle before officers arrived.

"It took a while because it was so many people, it was mass chaos in there", Avila said.

The names of the victims have not been released though Tiffany Wilson, Director of Walmart Communications, did confirm that all Walmart staff has been accounted for.

Customers and employees hid or fled toward the exits after gunshots rang out in Thornton, a suburb of Denver.
