    At Least 5 Dead in Kentucky Plant Shooting
    By RYAN LENZ Associated Press Writer
    HENDERSON, Ky. June 25, 2008 (AP)

    An employee got into an argument with a supervisor early Wednesday, then shot and killed four people at a western Kentucky plastics plant before killing himself, police said.

    The shooting happened at Atlantis Plastics in this Ohio River town of about 28,000 people.

    Henderson police Lt. David Piller said two others were injured and flown to hospitals in Evansville, Ind. At least one was in critical condition.

    The employee used a handgun he retrieved during a break, Piller said.

    The shooting victims were scattered around the plant, Piller said.

    "It appears the shooting was random at this time," Piller said.

    Police did not say if the supervisor the employee argued with was among the victims.

    A woman who answered the phone at a number for Atlantis Plastics declined to give her name and would only say that the company would not comment until a 3 p.m. news conference. The company's Web site said it is based in Atlanta, Ga.

    It's a good thing nobody else might have had a gun! They might have gone on a rampage together!

    I swear there's a nutter at my job who's going to shoot the place up when he gets fired. And it's coming soon.... probably within the next two months. He's had TONS of complaints lately. He's a big barrelchested loudmouth who bullies everybody... on the phone and in person. He just tries to intimidate everybody, an angry person, etc

    And he'll probably come after me first because I'm the only one who actually says anything to him and gets into his shit about being rude on the phone to our customers, clients, drivers, etc.

    The really fucking sad thing is that this is how some of the antis really think. They believe the gun is what causes these things to happen, and ignore the more obvious reality. :ugh:

    You do realize that there will be some element of irony if you end up getting shot in the parking lot, right? :hsugh:

    There was a murder/suicide at the place I worked last year. I was lucky enough to not be in that building at the time as I worked at the production facility down the road. I was in the building where the shooting occured quite often though. Very surreal event though. You think you're safe at work but then something like this happens and throws that idea out the window.

    I need to. I found out today that he apparently got into a fist fight while he was at his shrink's office for his anger management counseling. Apparently he was waiting in the lobby and got up to use the bathroom. When he returned, somebody was sitting in "his chair" and he confronted the guy and a fight ensued.

    :rofl:
