    At least 2 killed in workplace shooting in California - handgun and assault rifle

    At least 2 killed in workplace shooting in California

    At least two people were reported killed and several injured in a workplace shooting at a quarry in Cupertino, Calif., according to media reports.

    Update at 10:04 a.m. ET: Officers in Santa Clara County report that the shooter is still on foot and may be armed with an AK-47, according to emergency services scanners.

    Update at 9:52 a.m. ET: KGO-TV reports that police have confirmed two dead and four seriously wounded in the shooting at a quarry. The station says an employee allegedly showed up at the morning safety meeting armed with an automatic rifle and handgun and began firing.

    NBC Bay Area initially said three people were reported killed in the shooting.

    Original posting: The NBC station says unconfirmed reports from emergency services scanners indicate a shooter armed with a handgun and possibly an assault rifle is reportedly on foot.

    The shooter was seen arriving by car at Lehigh Permanents Cement Inc. in Cupertino, which is in Santa Clara County.

    The shooter reportedly contacted police with a radio at the site and threatened to continue shooting, NBC says.

    Hope they catch him and he rots in prison, or saves us some money and catches one to the dome...

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    If he called police, he apparently wants to die. All you need to say is I'm going to keep shooting to take any of the restraint away from the LEO's responding.

    How could this happen? I thought Cali had tough gun laws.

    According to California laws, this is inconceivable!

    Probably one of those Glock AK 47's with the 30 round clip!

    "AK-47" "automatic rifle" and "assault rifle" are all worked into the story. Frankly I'm a little disappointed they didn't use "high powered". Maybe they'll squeeze that into the next update.
