Skooter reporting 09/01/12

Two of his co-workers were gunned down by a Brooklyn-born former Marine with an AK-47 in a New Jersey Pathmark early yesterday, including a teenage girl who had just swapped to the overnight shift.

The gunman was identified as Terence Tyler, 23, a warehouse boy at the Old Bridge supermarket 25 miles from Manhattan, randomly shoot his victims in a warehouse area at 4 a.m., then switched to a .45-caliber handgun and killed himself. Tyler had ran out of the store a half-hour earlier, headed to his car and changed into camouflage outfit and picked up his mini-arsenal.

His victims were Cristina LoBrutto, 18, just graduated from the Old Bridge High and Bryan Breen, 24, of the Laurence Harbor section of the town.

In 2010, Tyler was discharged from the Marines, and had been working in the store’s stock room for just a couple of weeks or three, sources said. His motive was not clear.

The former soldier did not serve overseas but received a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and National Defense Service Medal. He was a former CUNY student.
