Kansas Man Shoots 18 Coworkers, Killing Three

A factory employee in Kansas clocked into work for a regular shift as a painter in a lawn mower manufacturing plant…but a few short hours later, inexplicably left work, retrieved an assault rifle and a pistol, and returned to open fire seemingly at random on his coworkers throughout the plant. Via MailOnline:

A factory worker has been shot dead after opening fire at his workplace in Kansas, killing three and wounding 14.

Father-of-two Cedric Ford, 38, clocked in to work as a painter at lawn-mower manufacturing firm Excel Industries in the city of Hesston on Thursday morning.

But hours later he left – and returned with a high-powered rifle and a pistol.

He allegedly gunned down victims in four or five locations and stole a car along the road back to Excel Industries at 5pm on Thursday. The stolen car’s driver was one of the three killed.

Three people were shot dead and 14 were injured – 10 critically – before Ford was gunned down by police, sheriffs told a press conference.

One worker told KAKE News that Ford, of Newton, Kansas, had ‘mental issues’ and was ‘being teased a little bit’ when he worked at Excel.

However, another said ‘he was the nicest guy I know’ and that they had been chatting as normal when they walked in the plant to clock in this morning.

Ford, a father-of-two, has a history of burglary convictions, grand theft, and prowling. It is not clear how he managed to obtain a weapon given his criminal record.

SMH!!! When are people going to stop taking out all their anger on random strangers through these mass shootings?
