Disgruntled St. Louis Power Plant Worker Kills Two Employees


A disgruntled employee of a St. Louis power company stormed the plant with an assault rifle this morning, killing two workers and injuring five others, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The gunman, Timothy Hendron, 51, was a plaintiff in a class-action federal lawsuit against the company, ABB, and its pension review committee over financial losses. A bench trial of the case was under way today in federal court in Kansas City. At the St. Louis plant today, conversations between dispatchers and police on the scene painted a horrific scene — where bleeding victims were hiding, afraid to come out.
