Jeffersontown, KY — Gregory Alan Bush, the man who was facing several charges for fatally shooting two Black shoppers at a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky last year, has been found currently incompetent to stand trial.

Jefferson Circuit Judge Annie O’Connell ruled that he is not competent for trial for now but said that it could change so she scheduled a follow-up competency hearing for July 24. O’Connell also ordered Bush to be housed in the Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center and undergo forced medication for 60 days.

Bush has been charged with two charges of murder, two charges of wanton endangerment and one charge of attempted murder after he allegedly shot and killed Maurice Stallard, who is 69-years old, and Vickie Lee Jones, who is 67-years old. He pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

If he could, later on, be eligible for the trial and convicted of the charges, Bush could face either the death penalty or life in prison. Moreover, Bush’s son previously said his father had been diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder and had expressed irrational fears in the past.
