The suspect’s identity was not immediately released. The circumstances of the four injured persons were unknown, the police said.

“We have no motive yet, no information as to what he may have been thinking or anything else,” Beavercreek Police Capt. Scott Molnar told reporters at the scene. “We’re still looking at it. It’s very, very early in the investigation.”

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on the scene assisting, Molnar said.

Walmart said it was broken. “This remains a developing situation and we are working closely with investigators on the scene,” a spokesman said.

Beavercreek is a city of about 46,000 east of Dayton.
