Press Conference: Minneapolis Police Give Details of Mass Shooting
Minneapolis Police Department and Mayor R.T. Ryback gave an overview of the shooting details Friday afternoon.
The man who burst into a sign-making business in Minneapolis, fatally shooting the owner and three others before turning the gun on himself, had been fired from the company earlier in the day, police said Friday.
Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan identified the shooter, who injured at least four others in the Thursday afternoon attack, as Andrew J. Engeldinger, 36, of Minneapolis.
Engeldinger had been fired from his job at Accent Signage Systems earlier in the day, Dolan said. He came back about 4:25 p.m., parked his car, walked into the loading dock area and immediately started shooting people. But it also appeared he may have spared some of his former colleagues.
