Police on Thursday morning arrested the man suspected of shooting and killing three people at a Walmart in Thornton, Colorado the day before, according to KDVR.

KDVR on Thursday reported that a SWAT team entered an apartment in unincorporated Adams County that was believed to be connected to Scott Ostrem, 47, after he was identified as the alleged gunman earlier that morning.

Ostrem was not found at the apartment located at 7121 Samuel Drive, but just before 8 a.m. local time, a 2017 red, four-door Mitsubishi Mirage drove past the apartment complex.

The car was associated with Ostrem, and authorities followed it West 72nd Avenue and Federal Boulevard before stopping the vehicle and apprehending him.

The Thornton Police Department said that Ostrem "nonchalantly" began firing upon people inside the Walmart located at 9900 Grant St. around 6 p.m. local time Wednesday.

Two men were pronounced dead at the scene, and another woman died after getting taken to an area hospital. The names and ages of the three victims have not yet been released.
