Police: Man kills woman, self at N.C. Target store - CNN.com
A man walked into a North Carolina Target store on Sunday and shot an employee he had had a previous relationship with before turning the gun on himself, police said.
"Target is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our team members and the tragic event that took place at our Apex, North Carolina, store shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday morning," Target spokeswoman Brandy Doyle said in a statement. "The store was immediately evacuated following the incident and we are cooperating fully with law enforcement in its investigation."
Apex police spokeswoman Ann Stephens told CNN the victim and suspect had been in a relationship that ended several years ago. She was in the store at her cash register Sunday morning when he came in and shot her, Stephens said. The man died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds, she said.
The store will be closed Sunday "so that we can focus on taking care of our team," Doyle said. Counselors would be made available at the store, she said.
Apex is about 15 miles west of Raleigh, North Carolina.

This is what I was trying to explain to my husband about carrying to the dentist. You never know when some nut job is going to target some innocent employee and you get in the crossfire somehow.

Workplace violence - A very good reason why employers should allow employees to carry. Maybe, if the lady would have been armed, she would have had a chance to defend herself.
BTW, Apex is the home of The Beltman.

Sad day for sure, but being armed would probably not have stopped that dirtbag...some things just can't be avoided no matter how many guns are nearby.

Update from WRAL
Shooter kills Target cashier, commits suicide :: WRAL.com
Apex, N.C. — Apex police Capt. Ann Stephens said 59-year-old Guadalupe Rosa was shot to death Sunday inside Super Target where she worked as a cashier. The shooter then killed himself.
At around 11:35 a.m., police responded to reports of an active shooter in Target, at 1201 Beaver Creek Commons Drive, Stephens said.
They found Guadalupe F. Rosas, 59, of 1007 Celandine Drive in Apex, fatally shot in the front of the store.
Witness Justin Ley said he was in the checkout line at the Target when he heard a gunshot. He said Rosas fell beside him and he locked eyes with her gunman.
I’m speculating, but since they had known each other since 2005 it is a domestic violence situation that went badly.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
