(CBS/AP) OLD BRIDGE, N.J. – Prosecutors have identified the man who allegedly shot and killed two people and then himself at a New Jersey supermarket Friday morning as 23-year-old Terence Tyler, an employee of the store, CBS New York reports.

Officials say Terence Tyler, 23, a former Marine Corps infantryman entered a New Jersey grocery store with an AK-47 and killed two coworkers before fatally shooting himself. Marine Corps officials said Tyler did not deploy during his Marine Corps service, but would not discuss details about his 2010 discharge.

The suspect left a Pathmark in Old Bridge Township around 3:30 a.m. and returned a half-hour later with a handgun and an AK-47 assault rifle, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said.

Sources tell CBS New York that Tyler is an ex-Marine who had worked at the store for about two weeks. He served in the military from 2008 to 2010.
