Gunman Shoots Three, Kills Self at CA Printer
SIGNAL HILL, CA—Angered at a reduction in work hours, an employee of Kenyon Press shot three co-workers on Monday before taking his own life.
The man, reported to be 68-year-old Jose Mendez, used a semi-automatic handgun to shoot three fellow employees, the same people who had helped him obtain employment at the custom design menu printing facility, the Associated Press reported. He walked past a superior en route to shooting the workers before shooting himself, the AP said.
Mendez had reportedly been distraught over a reduction in hours, which impacted all employees but had kept him out of work completely for at least a month, the AP said.
None of the injuries sustained in the shootings appeared to be life threatening.
