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.

Tyler, who once lived in Brooklyn, spent nearly two years in the Marine Corps — stationed mostly in California. The lance corporal, whose military specialty was rifleman, was discharged on Feb. 27, 2010.
Terence S. Tyler, 23, served in the U.S. Marines Corps. from 2008 to 2010, and most recently held the rank of lance corporal and was a rifleman
“He was a quiet guy,” said an uncle, who identified himself only as Chris. “He was alright. We just want to offer our condolences to all the victims’ families.”
A fellow resident in the apartment complex said Tyler was a bit of a loner.
