A fired United Parcel Service employee donned his uniform, drove to his former place of employment in Birmingham, Alabama, evaded security — and gunned down two of his former co-workers, police said.

Kerry Joe Tesney, 45, then turned around and shot himself, police said, The Associated Press reported.

Police haven’t yet released the victims names, but say they were on the management team.

The company released a brief statement saying that the shooter had entered the building after 80 or so drivers had gone home for the day.

A nearby pastor who know Tesney — Pastor Bill Wilks of NorthPark Baptist Church — described him as troubled about work and finances, AP reported.
