Alleged Kroger Shooter Charged With Two Counts of Murder

Gregory Bush, who allegedly shot and killed two black people at a Kroger grocery store near Louisville, Kentucky, was indicted on two counts of murder Wednesday. The Associated Press reports a Jefferson County grand jury also indicted Bush on “one count of criminal attempted murder and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.” A federal prosecutor told the AP that investigators are attempting to determine whether Bush violated any federal laws, including “potential civil rights violations” like hate crimes. Bush, a 51-year-old white man, was allegedly seen attempting to enter the predominantly black First Baptist Church just before the shooting at the grocery store. Police Chief Sam Rogers said he believes the shooting was racially motivated. Bush is currently being held at a local jail, and his case will reportedly proceed to Jefferson County Circuit Court in Louisville.
