(Newser) – Six people were rushed to the hospital this morning after a man opened fire at a FedEx warehouse in Kennesaw, Ga. Three of those patients are in critical condition, with two in surgery and one on "advanced life support," a doctor tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. One other patient is in stable condition, while two others are being released. The suspected shooter, a package handler at the warehouse, has been found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. More than 100 officers from various departments responded to the call, which came just before 6am. The facility is currently on lockdown while they search for secondary devices.

The suspect was dressed all in black with a camouflage vest, and "had bullets strapped to his chest like Rambo," clerk Liza Aiken told reporters at WGCL and WXIA. She heard him drop a foot-long knife before he began shooting, and then ran. She said she didn't know what his motive was, but mentioned that last week he had flashed a laser scanner into her eyes, and that he'd been reprimanded for it after Aiken complained to management. "To me he just seemed like an immature boy."

Odd, isn't it that we hardly ever hear of someone in management going postal?

In today's workplace where people are hating each other and snitching and back stabbing I am not surprised that this happened. Good thing that 99.9% of people aren't killers because half of us would be dead by now. I propose to arm everyone just like in Wild West times and have them deal with situation like a man or a woman.

I guess Wayne LaPierre's good guy with a gun missed to memo to be there to protect them.
