Deputies told Scripps station WPTV, the shooting at the store at the corner of Royal Palm Beach Boulevard happened just after 11:30 a.m. ET.
County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay, who represents the area, said in a statement she was told the child was a toddler. "Detectives are in the beginning stages of determining what led up to the shooting".
A shooting inside a Florida supermarket on Thursday morning has left three people dead, including a child and the gunman. "You don't like to hear about them anywhere in the country", McKinlay said, according to WPTV. We are cooperating with the local law enforcement.

Even if the Pope issues a formal apology, Lansdowne says there's far more to be done for churches to work towards reconciliation. She says his address does not meet the needs of the survivors, who are the ones asking for the apology.
'This was NOT an active shooter situation, ' the sheriff's office stated, without providing any further details.
A sheriff's office helicopter hovered in the air above the store, and a Palm Beach County Fire Rescue vehicle was at the scene. The company is Florida's largest grocery chain and has more than 1,200 stores in the Southern United States.
The archer was among the deceased, according to a tweet from the sheriff's office.
Joey Mendoza, a 62-year-old Royal Palm Beach resident, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel he had just arrived at the store, and was still in his auto in the parking lot, when he spotted officers wearing tactical gear hurrying inside. The village is about 15 miles inland, west of West Palm Beach.
