Supermarket employee Terence Tyler kills two co-workers with AK-47 and self at Pathmark
Defenseless Cristina Lobrutto, 18, of Old Bridge, N.J., and her friend Bryan Breen, 24, of Laurence Harbor, N.J., were killed, while a dozen colleagues escaped the carnage unharmed.
A store manager reportedly steered most of the survivors to safety through a back door before Tyler committed suicide.
Lobrutto was covering a shift for a friend when the shooting started, with Tyler blasting out two of the front windows during the unprovoked attack.
The shooter was carrying extra magazines of ammunition, the assault rifle and a handgun when the killings began, said Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan.

A fellow resident in the apartment complex said Tyler was a bit of a loner.
