Kraft Shooting, Two people were shot dead after a disgruntled employee of women in a Kraft factory in Philadelphia on Thursday night opened fire just minutes after having been suspended from her job, police said.
A third person was injured before the shooter was arrested, police said.
“I heard the shots, and I ran,” Andy Ryan, a mixer at the plant of cookies and crackers, told The Associated Press. “As I was running down the stairs they were screaming, ‘Oh, my God, there are three people who fired!”
Approximately 100 people were in the building when the woman, identified as Yvonne Hiller by the Philadelphia Inquirer, drove through a guardrail and went back into the factory with a 357 magnum 10 minutes after she was escorted out of building, police said.
Police did not say why Hiller, who had worked at Kraft for 15 years, was suspended from his job.
“I do not know what his motive is and I do not want to guess,” said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.
After the shooting, a short confrontation with a SWAT team came with seven employees trapped in an upstairs bedroom, the Inquirer.
Police said the seven were “a bad position, but left the scene unharmed.
The names of two people killed were not disclosed.
Kraft said the factory would be closed as police conduct their investigation.
In a statement, the company said: “This is a sad day for the Kraft Foods family.”
