Yvonne Hiller was suspended from her job and escorted off the property Thursday night. Approximately 10 minutes after she was let go, she re-entered the property with a handgun and proceeded to fire shots at other employees.
“I heard the gunfire, and I ran,” Andy Ryan, a dough mixer at the cookie and cracker plant, told The Associated Press. “As I was running down the steps they were yelling, ‘Oh, my God, there’s three people shot!’”
Hiller reportedly drove her car through a security barrier and re-entered the facility with a .352 magnum (insert obvious comment about US gun laws and the need for tighter restriction on weapons).
The names of the two victims who died in the shootings have not been released.
The company issued a statement saying “This is a sad day for the Kraft Food family.”
And a sad day for the family and friends of the victims, as well.
