A murder-suicide that took place Thursday morning inside a Publix grocery store in Florida has left three people dead, including a toddler.

A statement released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office shortly after the incident confirmed the shooting happened in Royal Palm Beach.

The statement said police were summoned to the store at The Crossroads Shopping Center just after 11:30 a.m.

"Upon arrival, deputies located three individuals deceased from gunshot wounds," the statement read. The deceased were a man, a woman and a child.

In a separate statement released on Thursday night, authorities said that the shooter was the man and the woman was grandmother of the child.

The child was only identified as a 1-year-old boy in the statement.

Officials said the grandmother and the child's identities have not been released due to Marsy's Law, an amendment to the state constitution meant to protect crime victims.

"The gunman's name will be released after his next of kin has been notified," a statement from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office read. "There is NO known motive or relationship between the gunman and the victims."
