Richard Klaff, 20, began by lighting a cigarette in an upstairs bathroom at the Georgetown Kroger, stating:

A gunman filmed himself opening fire in a supermarket after searching the store for “someone good” and failing to reach him.

Richard Klaff, 20, livestreamed the shooting on Facebook as he prepared and carried out the attack on a Kroger store in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

He began around 6:15 p.m. Thursday by lighting a cigarette in an upstairs bathroom at the Georgetown Kroger, stating, “I’m going to shoot 11 people… look.”

He cocked the gun several times before walking down the stairs and wandering around the supermarket looking for the right target.

‘Which one am I going to choose? Let me find someone good real quick, I’m not going to kill any old people,” she said.

Klaff bragged about walking through a supermarket with a gun and pointing it at the camera in one of the aisles.

“I’m going out strong…baby watch,” he said.

Klaff eventually saw a black woman at what appeared to be a deli or bakery counter and marked her for death.

“Oh yeah, I see one, I see one,” he said, and then he fired six bullets at him, all of which missed and no one was hurt.

Klaff’s chosen target raised fears that the shooting was racially motivated, but it was unclear if that was the case or if she was the first black shopper he had seen.
