A man accused of shooting and killing two people Wednesday at a Kentucky grocery store paints himself as mentally ill with paranoid schizophrenia, according to a Facebook page that appears to be his, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports. Gregory Bush, 51, is facing two counts of murder and 10 counts of wanton endangerment following the public shooting that left one man dead inside the store and a woman slain in the parking lot. A Facebook page that appears to be Bush’s says he is on disability because his “paranoid-schizophrenia finally stopped me from working.” The page says, “I have worked most of my life and battled mental illness throughout my life.”

The Courier Journal said it had not been able to independently verify whether Bush wrote what is on the Facebook page, nor could it confirm whether Bush has any mental illness or is on any sort of disability. Around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Bush allegedly walked into a Kroger store and “pulled a pistol from his waistband and shot (a man) in the rear of the head and again multiple times as he lay on the floor,” according to an arrest citation. Bush then allegedly re-holstered his weapon and walked out of the store. Outside, he reportedly drew his weapon again and shot and killed a woman in the parking lot.  Another shopper, who had a concealed weapon permit, then “challenged” Bush, and Bush began “firing wildly at the civilian throughout the parking lot.” Police arrested Bush at a nearby bank.
