Man Kills Woman, Self In Factory

By Compiled From Wire Services

A man walked into an auto parts manufacturer near Detroit Monday and fired several shots, prompting hundreds of workers to leave the building. He then shot and killed a woman who worked there and himself, police said.

The gunman entered Johnson Controls Inc. about 1:28 p.m. and fired two to three shots. Police arrived and evacuated the building.

When officers entered about 3:10 p.m., they found two bodies inside

“It appears that the male shot the female,” Sheriff Robert Ficano said.

Broadcast reports indicated that the man may have entered the plant looking for a woman he once had a relationship with. Police would not comment. No identities were released.

Johnson Controls makes seats and other auto components.
