    According to local authorities, the incident occurred at the Publix grocery store inside the Crossroads shopping centre in Royal Palm Beach Boulevard.

    Two adults and one child are dead after a gunman opened fire in a supermarket in Florida.

    Local police took to Twitter to provide some details about the incident, adding that it was not an active shooter situation. 

    ​A reporter for WPTV-TV said there was a large police presence near the grocery store at the intersection of RPD Boulevard and Okeechobee.

    ​The broadcaster quoted Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay as saying that the child who was fatally shot inside the Publix grocery store was a toddler.

    Police have not yet confirmed the exact age of the child or the two other victims.

    An investigation is underway.
