— Apex police released additional recordings Friday of 911 calls from a fatal shooting at a Super Target earlier this week.

"Three shots fired, so far. You better get out quick," a caller says in one of the calls. "We've all ran out of the store. Let's go! Hurry up, please!"

Police said Mervin Carroll Mims, 67, shot and killed his former girlfriend, Guadalupe F. Rosas, 59, of Apex, before killing himself in the store Sunday morning.

Rosas was a cashier at the store, at 1201 Beaver Creek Commons Drive.

Apex police Capt. Ann Stephens said the two ended their relationship in 2005 but had stayed in contact since then. They have not commented on a motive for the shooting.

Earlier this week, police released several other 911 recordings in the case.
