The Florida gunman who fatally shot a 1-year-old boy and the child’s grandmother before turning the weapon on himself had recently been acting “strange” and had previously written on social media that he wanted to “kill people and children,” the Palm Beach County Sheriff said Friday.

Timothy J. Wall, 55, is not believed to have had any encounter with the toddler and his 69-year-old grandmother before he gunned both down inside the Royal Palm Beach Publix store late Thursday morning, Sheriff Ric L. Bradshaw said during an afternoon news conference.

The article goes on to state the following:

Bradshaw and other sheriff’s office officials described in chilling detail how the two victims entered the store at 11:07 a.m. Eastern Time, grabbed one of the shopping carts outfitted with a car for the child to play with and began shopping.


The report states that, based on surveillance video, Wall entered the store at 11:29 a.m. He found the grandmother and her little grandson in the produce section, and shot the baby first as he sat in the shopping cart, then shot the grandmother.

Wall then took his own life by shooting himself in the head. Police said he had also been in the same store earlier that morning, at 9:02 a.m.

Frank Guzman, Broward Bureau Chief for WSVN-TV, shared photos of the victims, writing, “This is Lithia Varone, 69, and her 23 month-old grandson. They’re the victims gunned down inside a Royal Palm Beach Publix by 55 year-old Timothy Wall. @PBCountySheriff says they have no reason to believe Wall knew the victims before the shooting Thursday.”

Multiple news outlets shared the following photo of Wall.

WATCH the press conference below, as Sheriff Ric L. Bradshaw angrily asked why someone who saw Wall’s disturbing threats on Facebook didn’t speak up and say something.

“You think a damn soul told us about that? No,” Bradshaw said, noting the shooting could have been avoided.

“If it sounds like I’m angry, I am. Because if somebody would have … called us on the phone and said, ‘Hey, this may not be anything, but it may be something. Because this person is talking about bad things and he’s acting strange.”

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office shared the following in a series of Twitter posts on Friday:

We have Interviewed 30 people who were inside the store and recovered the video of the entire incident.
11:07 AM victims entered the store
11:29 AM suspect entered the store.
11:31 AM suspect enters the produce section where the victims were and takes out his gun.

He shoots the child. The grandmother interferes with the gunman and because of her brave actions, his gun jams. After some struggling, he then ends up shooting the grandmother and then himself.

.@PBCFR declared all 3 involved dead. Sheriff @RicBradshaw says “This tragedy fits the profile around the U.S.” And it all comes down to mental health.

[email protected] believes there was a chance this could have been prevented. Why? Because the suspect was on Facebook saying he wanted to kill people and children. He affirms that: “This could have been prevented!”

The shooters own wife said he was acting strangely and paranoid. #IfYouSeeSomethingSaySomething.

  1. What about FB??? They’re too busy censoring and silencing conservative voices to be bothered with such a heinous and horrific post! FB should be sued big time for this!!🤬

  2. Evil personified. For whatever sick and demented reason, he wanted to inflict pain not only on the innocent victims and their loved ones but on society as a whole. Facebook and Zuckerberg have blood on their hands for they were aware of his homicidal posts and did nothing to alert the authorities. They should be made to pay! May the victims RIP and condolences to their families.

  3. Why didn’t FACEBOOK report that ?????? My God they stalk us for the slightest thing if your a conservative !!!! I blame them !!!! Take them to court and the wife !!!

  4. This country definitely needs to address the mental health issues right now and open up some mental institutions immediately

  5. Should’ve simply offed himself i am sickened at these subhumans dragging others with them hooe he rots in hell. My very deepest sympathies to the families left torn forever

  6. And why was grandma the only one to try to stop him ? Where were all the others ? Where were all the “brave” men ? Cowards!!!
