Benjamin Charles Jones has been identified as the gunman who injured four people in a mass shooting in the Beavercreek Walmart on Monday night before dying of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Benjamin Charles Jones was 20 years old.

One witness posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, and described the shooter as a tall young white male carrying a rifle.

He reportedly walked by her before opening fire.

What happened?

At 8:35 p.m. Monday, a gunman entered the Walmart at 3360 Pentagon Blvd. and began shooting, Beavercreek police Capt. Scott Molnar said during a media briefing Monday night.

He shot four people, who were transported to area hospitals for treatment. The shooter died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Molnar said.

Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies responded, as well as the Greene County Coroner’s Office.

A Walmart employee said they heard at least two shots, but didn’t see anyone get hit.

“I thought it was glass at first. I heard a couple people running and screaming so I darted out and we got to the Burger King parking lot,” the worker said.

Wright State University students Anna Cowley and Kailie Conley said they counted between 30 and 40 police cruisers with lights and sirens pulling up to the store.

The store is closed until further notice.

“We’re heartbroken by what’s happened at our Beavercreek, Ohio, store,” read a statement from Walmart. “This remains a developing situation, and we’re working closely with investigators on the scene.”

How are the victims?

Four adults were injured in the shooting, according to police. Three are in critical condition and the fourth has non-life-threatening injuries.

Three women and one man was injured, police said.

A CareFlight medical helicopter left the scene just before 10 p.m. for Miami Valley Hospital and the other three victims were transported to Soin Medical Center – Kettering Health in Beavercreek.

A Kettering Health spokeswoman said Tuesday morning she did not have any information on the condition of the three victims taken to Soin or if they had been transferred to another hospital.
