Recently fired UPS worker Joe Tesney, identified by local news sites, allegedly opened fire in a UPS warehouse where he killed two people before himself.
Three people are dead after a recently-fired UPS employee, wearing his uniform, opened fire inside an Alabama warehouse Tuesday morning.
The gunman, identified by local news stations as 45-year-old Joe Tesney, is among the dead at the Birmingham shipping center after taking his own life at the scene, police said.
The gunfire at Inglenook Lane was reported to police around 9:21 a.m. as an active shooter, Chief A.C. Roper said.
Lt. Sean Edwards said the two men killed by the gunman appeared to be higher-ranked UPS employees.
"It appears that the shooter knew exactly who he wanted to target at the time," Edwards told WBRC.Tesney, pictured, is listed as a UPS driver on his LinkedIn page. Police said the suspected gunman was fired on Monday before returning to the warehouse while armed.
