OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (CBS 58) –  The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department tells CBS 58 the suspect in a shooting at a Roundy’s distribution center is 41-year-old Fraron Cornelius of Wauwatosa.

Police continue to investigate the shooting that killed two people and ultimately led to the suspect dying by a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Milwaukee.

The overnight shooting prompted Oconomowoc Police to reach out to law enforcement partners for help in locating the suspect. Wauwatosa police officials said they were able to locate the suspect which led to a pursuit that eventually included Milwaukee police and ended in a crash at the intersection of 92nd Street and Townsend Street in Milwaukee.

Witnesses in the neighborhood said they woke up to the sound of sirens.

“I ran downstairs and there was the black car,” Austin Duerr, who lives close by, told CBS 58. “And I saw the door open and the gentleman fell to his knees and then seconds later there was a gunshot and he just fell over.”

Police confirmed the suspect died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The investigation continued as police learned the suspect lived in Wauwatosa.

"Our officers are assisting the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department in executing a search warrant at the suspect's residence," said Sergeant Abby Pavlik, with the Wauwatosa Police Department.

Sources told CBS 58 Cornelius worked with Roundy’s for more than 20 years and was a member of the local union for more than 20 years as well.

While there are several law enforcement agencies involved, the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department is the lead investigating agency in this case.
