Jeep worker shoots 3, kills self



Published: Thu, January 27, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



TOLEDO (AP) -- An employee of a Jeep production plant wounded three workers with a double-barrel shotgun, then shot and killed himself Wednesday, police said.

The shooting happened in the plant's body shop office about 8:45 p.m, police Chief Mike Navarre said.

One victim was shot in the chest and was in critical condition. Two others were less seriously injured, including one worker who was shot in the arm.

Navarre did not release the victims' names. The unidentified gunman shot himself in the head, he said.

The gunman had been disciplined recently, Navarre said, but would not elaborate.

His body was found in the office where the others were shot. Police called in a bomb squad because they noticed wires coming out from under the gunman's coat. Navarre said he didn't know what the wires were, "but we're not taking any chances."

Police said that when the shooter walked into the plant he was yelling and demanding that some of the body shop's supervisors come to the office area. Authorities did not know know if any of victims were supervisors.
