Police: 1 dead, 4 wounded at Fresno, Calif., workplace
Question of the Day
FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — One person died and four others, including a suspected gunman, were wounded Tuesday when he opened fire at a food service company here, police said.
The suspect, a parolee who worked at the firm and was identified as Lawrence Jones, shot himself in the head outside the building and was in critical condition, police said.
Two of the wounded victims were in critical condition, and the other was in serious condition.
The shooting occurred at the Apple Valley Farms plant in the central part of the city.
Apple Valley Farms Inc. is a food service equipment company that was established in 2005, according to online business records. A call to the company went to a voice-mail recording that said, “Due to an emergency, we are closed for the day.”
Police received calls from employees at the site around 8:27 a.m. PST. Police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers found the suspect with a gunshot wound to the head and a 32-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the back outside the business.
Inside, they found three other victims.
