Fired worker kills 2 managers, self at California dealership
MORGAN HILL, Calif. (AP) — A man who had just been fired from a Northern California Ford dealership returned with a gun and shot and killed two employees and then killed himself Tuesday evening, police and witnesses said.
Police called to the Ford Store Morgan Hill found a man shot dead of an apparently self-inflicted wound on the ground outside some service bays.
Jordan Valdez, a service porter at the dealership, tells the East Bay Times the man apparently shot the two managers who fired him. Police did not immediately identify the gunman or the victims.
Valdez says that during the shooting an employee said to run because there was a shooter and he sought cover at a nearby mushroom farm.
He expressed shock at the shooting and said the suspect “minded his own business.”
He says all employees got along and that “nobody really hated each other.”
