Warehouse Driver Kills 9 Then Self in Conn. Shooting Rampage

A warehouse driver has killed nine people, including himself, and wounded others in a US shooting rampage.

Omar S Thornton (34) reportedly entered the warehouse in Manchester, Connecticut, and fired at staff with a .223 calibre semi-automatic rifle, Belfast Telegraph reports .

"Then he went out on this rampage," company vice president Steve Hollander told The Associated Press. "He was cool and calm. He didn't yell. He was cold as ice. He didn't protest when we were meeting with him to show him the video of him stealing. He didn't contest it. He didn't complain. He didn't argue. He didn't admit or deny anything. He just agreed to resign. And then he just unexplainably pulled out his gun and started blasting."

Hollander said he thinks Thornton, 34, had guns stashed in his lunch box. The executive said two people standing near him were shot in the head and killed, but he was only grazed in the jaw and the arm, The Associated Press says.
