(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) -- An employee at a UPS facility shot and killed two coworkers before taking his own life Tuesday morning, according to police.
The accused shooter was wearing his work uniform at the Inglenook UPS Center during the incident.
"It's extremely troubling for the city, for these families that are involved, because when these people came to work today, they had no idea that this would be their last day here on Earth," said Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.
Officials have yet to establish a motive.
"Today’s incident is a reminder of the importance of law enforcement training to respond to active shooters," Gov. Robert Bentley said in a statement. "State law enforcement resources are available and ready to assist if needed as investigators work to determine a cause in this deadly shooting."
