Police: Two dead, including gunman, in workplace shooting
A current or former employee shot one person to death and wounded three others before apparently killing himself at a rail car plant in Virginia early Tuesday, authorities said.
Officers responded to a report of an active shooter just after 6 a.m. at FreightCar America, said Roanoke Police Chief Tim Jones.
Two people, including the shooter, were found dead at the facility, Jones said. Three others with gun-related injuries were taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. One patient was in serious condition, and the other two were in fair and good condition, respectively, the hospital said in a statement.
Jones said police believe the man had once worked for or was still an employee of the facility. Authorities have not identified him or the victims.
One witness hid inside a bathroom during the shooting, and police will get statements from him and others, Jones said.
