| No Comments

Five people are dead after a deadly workplace shooting Thursday afternoon in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis, according to a Kare11.com article.

Police confirmed Friday that the shooter, who apparently turned his gun on himself, was 36-year-old Andrew Engeldinger, said the Kare11 report.

Police said Friday that Engeldinger had ammunition packaging at his house for more than 10,000 rounds, said Paul Walsh, Abby Simons and Mary Lynn Smith of the Star Tribune.

The victims included a sign making company owner and a local United Parcel Service driver, but the police have not released the names of the other two fatalities, they said. Several others were injured in the shooting.

The shooting occurred in the late afternoon Thursday, and officers arrived on the scene quickly, where they evacuated the building, sealed off a block around the business, and then began sweeping the building for the shooter, according to a NBCNews.com article.

In a statement, Governor Mark Dayton said: "I deplore this senseless violence. There is no place for it anywhere in Minnesota. I extend my deepest condolences to the families and friends of the innocent people killed or wounded."
