Desperate employee of California Ford Dealership, kills his bosses then kills himself
Steven Leet, 60, executed two of his colleagues because he was fired. The tragedy broke out at the Morgan Hill Ford Store 76 miles south of San Francisco.
According to eyewitnesses, no one expected such a turn of events. There were no conflicts between employees. But the witnesses suggest that the shooter was fired that day and when he returned with a pistol, he first fired at the managers and then at himself.
“As they approached they located a male,” Police Sargent Bill Norman told the Associated Press (AP). “He was down on the ground, he had gunshot wounds and was deceased. In his hand was a firearm, handgun.”
A few minutes later, the police found 2 victims. It was Xavier Souto and Brian Light.
“They secured the scene and they were directed by other employees inside the building where two additional males were located and later pronounced dead from gunshot wounds,” Norman said.
According to preliminary data, there are no other suspects, but the investigation is ongoing.
“He was apparently fired today or someone from the dealership was fired today and came back and just shot the manager who would have obviously fired him,” Ford Store Morgan Hill Employee Jordan Valdez told AP.
