The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is releasing surveillance video of the shooting rampage inside a gun shop on Sunday that killed three people.

Sheriff Joseph Lopinto discussed the video yesterday, saying the gunman, identified as Joshua Williams, was told several times he could not have a loaded firearm in the store before he became angry and began shooting.

Store clerk Herbert Fischbach and customer Veronica Billiot were killed before Williams was shot dead by employees in the parking lot.

Williams was at the store to buy ammunition with his brother Tim Williams, who was questioned by police. Williams said he did not have an answer as to why his brother started shooting.

Two employees were also wounded in the attack and are listed in stable condition.
