Police in Indianapolis say a man and his killer are dead following a murder-suicide at a ConAgra plant break room Friday evening.
A male employee at ConAgra Foods in northwest Indianapolis reportedly fired several shots and killed a male co-worker, before turning the gun on himself, Indianapolis' NBC-affiliate WTHR reported. The shooter was pronounced dead at the scene, while the victim was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to WTHR.
Indianapolis police spokesperson Officer Michael Hewitt confirmed with NBC News that it was a murder-suicide.
A witness told police the suspected shooter made eye contact with the victim in the break room, and shortly thereafter the victim was shot in the back while heading toward a vending machine, The Indianapolis Star reported. Police say the shootings took place at 6:40 p.m. ET, according to the newspaper.
Both names have not been released. The motive for the shooting is under investigation, WTHR reported.
WTHR noted the ConAgra facility "manufactures edible fats & oils, cheese, eggs and egg substitutes, milk and butter products, dairy products and eggs, engineering and research and technology-based services," according to MacRae's Blue Book.
