Chicago factory shooting kills 1, wounds 4
MELROSE PARK, Illinois (CNN) -- A gunman opened fire on workers at a truck engine plant in suburban Chicago on Monday, killing at least one person and wounding four, hospital officials said.
Navistar spokesman Roy Wyley confirmed that a shooting had taken place, but would not confirm any reports of injured. However, Gottlieb Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Angie Hatfield said three people were brought to the facility, and one -- a 48-year-old man -- was pronounced dead on arrival. Another, a 45-year-old man, was in critical condition.
Authorities would not confirm whether the reported fatality was the gunman himself.
And Loyola Medical Center spokeswoman Heidi Diedrich said that facility was treating two others wounded at the Navistar plant. One of those, a 26-year-old man, was in critical condition; the second, a 24-year-old man, was in fair condition.
Gunfire broke out in the factory's administrative offices shortly before 10 a.m. (11 a.m. EST), witnesses told CNN affilliate WBBM.
Navistar employs about 1,400 people at the Melrose Park location. The company manufactures International diesel-fueled truck and school bus engines at the plant, which was evacuated after the shooting.
