Police in the northeastern U.S. state of Connecticut say a disgruntled employee at a beer distribution firm went on a shooting spree at his place of employment, leaving nine people dead including himself.
A labor union official says the suspect was a driver who had worked at the company, Hartford Distributors. He apparently went on a rampage Tuesday, after being summoned for a disciplinary hearing.
The shooting took place at 7:30 in the morning at a company warehouse, while a large number of people were inside the building during a shift change.
Police say, after the rampage, it appears the gunman shot and killed himself.
