LENNOX, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Steel in Lennox is working with limited staff so employees can attend the funeral for a worker who was killed in a shooting incident last week.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1LjpZHF ) the funeral for Jon Richter is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Chancellor Reformed Church.

Authorities say Sioux Falls truck driver Jeffrey DeZeeuw got into an argument Feb. 12 with a supervisor at a Sioux Steel location called ProTec and fatally shot Richter and wounded a woman before killing himself. Authorities say DeZeeuw injured another male worker who confronted him.

The company reopened Monday, and has been letting employees come back to work whenever they feel ready. Sioux Steel also is offering counseling and other assistance to workers who want it.
