3 dead, 2 wounded in Florida truck company shootings

Quote:Investigators in a small Florida town were working Sunday to determine what led a 72-year-old former employee of a trucking company to go on a shooting spree Saturday, attacking former co-workers and his ex-boss, killing two and wounding two more before killing himself.

Authorities say Hubert Allen Jr. drove to several locations around Union County, including the headquarters for Pritchett Trucking Inc. and shot the men Saturday. Investigators believe Allen acted alone.

According to a Union County Sheriff's Office news release, Allen shot and killed former co-worker Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado, 28, around 9 a.m. Saturday, then went a short distance and fatally shot his former employer, 80-year-old Marvin Pritchett.

A few minutes later, he pulled over where another former co-worker was driving a farm tractor, exchanged words with him and then fired one shot from a shotgun, authorities said. That victim, 66-year-old Lewis Mabrey Jr., was in good condition as he was preparing to undergo surgery for a broken arm and other injuries, according to officials.

Not long after that, Allen went to the company's headquarters in Lake Butler and shot 44-year-old David Griffis in the stomach, the release said. Griffis was in critical condition. Authorities said Allen then returned to his nearby home and killed himself.

How much pain and anger one must have to do such a thing. How lost can one get that this seems an option? God rest their souls...
