Police said an East Tennessee man opened fire outside a store at the Tanger Outlet Mall on Tuesday, killing a 24-year-old woman from Pennsylvania and wounding a 75-year-old man from Massachusetts before turning the gun on himself.
The gunman was identified as 21-year-old Leon Steven Jones Jr.
Investigators said Jones killed himself after shooting Olivia Katelyn Cunningham, of York, Pennsylvania, and John Marr, of Templeton, Massachusetts.
Police believe the three people involved did not know each other.
"It appears that this was a random shooting," Sevierville Police Department spokesman Bob Stahlke told reporters at a news conference Tuesday evening.
Police believe Jones confronted Cunningham and Marr outside the Coach store, shot both with a semi-automatic handgun and then shot himself with the same weapon, a .32 caliber Kel-Tec pistol.
