Police: 1 hurt, gunman dead, in Mass. workplace shooting

Associated Press

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A man shot and injured a former co-worker at a Massachusetts business before killing himself in what police are calling an act of workplace violence.

A police spokesman says a man who had been fired a couple of months ago shot from outside at his former employer’s Cambridge building at about 7:45 a.m. Thursday, striking one employee.

That employee was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

Police spokesman Jeremy Warnick says the gunman then killed himself.

No names were released, but Warnick confirmed that both were male.

Warnick did not say what kind of business it was, but according to broadcast reports, the incident took place at a health insurance company.
