DEVELOPING: St. Louis police have responded to the scene of a reported workplace shooting in the northern part of the city.
A man reportedly entered a power company, said to be ABB Power, with a large assault rifle, police said, Fox 2 St. Louis reported.
Police received a call about the shooter at 6:30 a.m. local time.
The St. Louis Fire Department has confirmed to Fox 2 that there are four victims and said the gunman is still at large.
It is not known whether the victims were wounded or killed.
Family members of people who work at the power company have been calling into Fox 2
The scene was so chaotic that even the descriptions of the gunman were confusing to police. At first, a witness described the gunman only as a black man, about 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9, wearing a tan coat and carrying a semiautomatic weapon. Later, a company supervisor called police to give the name of a disgruntled worker who had possibly been recently fired. That worker was a white man.

I think whats sad'er is the fact that people feel they need to do stuff like this to make people take notice. Says a lot about society these days.
Police say the man they are looking for is Timothy Hendron, 51, of Webster Groves. He drives a pewter-colored Nissan truck with Missouri license plate OKK 696. The Post-Dispatch has learned that Hendron was a plaintiff in a class-action federal lawsuit against ABB and its pension review committee over financial losses.
SWAT team members searched for nearly four frantic hours for the gunman
Meanwhile, Webster Groves Police Lt. Andrew Miller said his department had no record of having ever responded to any disturbances at the home, at 307 Dobbin Road, where Hendron lived with his wife and an adult child.
