3 Dead, 1 Wounded in Fresno Workplace Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Police say three people are dead after a man opened fire at a food service company in Fresno Tuesday morning.

The county coroner says the suspected gunman is among the dead. One other person was wounded.

Police said the suspect, a parolee who worked at the firm and was identified as Lawrence Jones, shot himself in the head outside the building.

The shooting occurred at the Apple Valley Farms plant in the central part of the city.

Apple Valley Farms Inc. is a food service equipment company that was established in 2005, according to online business records.

Police say Jones opened fire a few hours into his shift. Officers found him with a gunshot wound to the head and a 32-year-old woman bleeding from a wound to her lower back outside the business. She was in stable condition.

Three other people were found shot inside the plant.  (AP)
