This is still breaking, so not much information just yet.

Police have not confirmed the reports but it appears the shooting happened at or near Apple Valley Farms in the area of Blackstone and Olive.

Looks like the gunman is dead at the scene. My heart goes out to those affected by this tragedy!

They say it was a lone gunman, an employee, 42, clocked into work and 3 hrs later he pulled out hand gun and opened fire on his co-workers. He then went outside and shot himself in the head after shooting at least eight people. Some victims are confirmed dead, they say. There were 30 witnesses and 62 employees working on site.

Prayers for the victims and their families.

What a messed up world we live in, where this is becoming commonplace.

Guess there won't be any wine for awhile.

Something agitated the guy to go after specifically 8 people. I'm going say this is isolated incident that could of been maybe preventive if those specific 8 people didn't antagonize him. Maybe 1-3 are collateral damage.

Same way students can badger, harass, assault or even kill their fellow classmates.

Nothing ruins the wonder and beauty of life quite like having to tolerate other people.

Anyway, workplace incidents are generally one of two things: he was being harassed by coworkers, or he wasnt satisfied with his status (overlooked for promotions, being laid off, felt unfairly compensated)

And of course there's always the "he just went bat # crazy" option.

I've thought about it.

But, this is no joking matter. Going to work shouldn't be life threatening. So sad for these people and their families.

MH...I usually enjoy your posts...this one, I don't. I find it sadly lacking in compassion, and empathy, for those who lost loved ones...what's going on with you MH...you are getting pretty dark...

Was going to say the same thing. If a kid in highschool can be pushed to doing something like this then an adult version of that kid that never learned to let go of what people said can be an even bigger bomb in a mental situation. Just cause he grew up doesn't mean he learned how to deal with bullies, and those aren't just in highschools..

People don't go on a rampage for nothing. Something set him off. Maybe the boss, maybe the gossip train workers. This stuff happens everyday, and everyday it gets posted on ATS. Lack of empathy. No.

i dont agree.
People dont always get along and can antagonise and wind each other up, however i dont think thats any excuse to pull out a gun and start shooting people.
i dont like the managers in my workplace, they are greedy and selfish which really Peeves me off, but i have never wanted to kill them!

You dont think it's an excuse but plenty of others do.

Everyday people are killed over pocket change, sneakers, electronic gadgets, funny looks, wearing the wrong color shirt, etc....

Life is cheap for some. A lot cheaper than most care to admit.

... and what a messed up world we have, where events like this are met with comments like "who can blame him? Haven't you ever had to work with an obnoxious person before?"

People don't deserve to die because they're annoying, and it wasn't that long ago that even implying such a thing was unheard of and repugnant.

I know!

I first saw it on Yahoo, and while I was putting a post together, they gave it about 1 minute on MSNBC and then went right back to covering the election.


"A shooting at a workplace, oh well, lets get back to the election."


How dare other news happen on election day and spoil the MSM news agenda!

Jesus Davila said he was at a bus stop on Olive Avenue when someone from a nearby meat factory ran up and said a gunman was shooting people inside. ...
Davila said the meat factory worker told him that the gunman had just got out of jail.
"He said the guy was in nine years and he was crazy," Davila said.

www.cbs47.tv...
Jones showed up to work about 5:00 a.m. and according to one coworker, did not appear to be himself.


--Why did he wait three hours to start shooting people?

--Did his recent jailing drive him over the edge? Was he facing a 'three strikes' prosecution?

--How did this ex-con get a gun?
