Pathmark Reopens 1 Week After Shooting

OLD BRIDGE, N.J. — The Pathmark store here where an employee is alleged to have shot and killed two co-workers and then himself reopened on Friday, one week after the incident.

“The incident at our Old Bridge Pathmark store on Aug. 31 was a shock and tragedy for all of us. We are grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from the community of Old Bridge, and we look forward to once again serving our neighborhood residents,” said Marcy Connor, a spokeswoman for Pathmark parent A&P, Montvale, N.J.

“We remain in contact with local authorities to assist with the ongoing investigation, and we commend our associates and local law enforcement for their quick thinking and early response.

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families and friends of the victims.”

As previously reported, authorities said 23-year-old Terence Tyler opened fire on his co-workers with an assault rifle before the store opened last Friday morning, killing Cristina LoBrutto, 18, and Bryan Breen, 24. Services for both were held earlier this week.

It was not clear what Tyler’s motive was.
