KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Dressed in camouflage and armed with a handgun, a disgruntledex-employee opened fire Tuesday at a truck rental business insuburban Atlanta, killing two people and injuring three others,police said.
The lone gunman drove off in a pickup truck and was arrestedafter police stopped him about a mile from the Penske Truck Rentalfacility, Cobb County police spokesman Joe Hernandez said.
"He wasn't here for very long and it wasn't long before he wastaken into custody," Hernandez said.
Penske spokesman Randy Ryerson said four of the victims wereemployees and the other was a customer. Neither police or Ryersonimmediately identified the suspect or released the conditions ofthose wounded.
The suspect worked at the business for several years, Hernandezsaid, but it was unclear when and why he left. The gunmanconfronted someone in the parking lot and moved to an area wherethere are truck bays, shooting victims, Hernandez said.
A man who witnessed the arrest said the suspect looked "out ofhis mind" and "all drugged up."
"The cops walked up on both sides of the truck, he opened thedoor and they threw him on the ground. He pretty much just gaveup," Michael Robertson told The Associated Press.
Penske said it was a very traumatic day.
"We want to extend our deepest concerns and sympathies for thevictims of today's shootings," Ryerson said.
WellStar Kennestone Hospital spokesman Keith Bowermaster saidfour victims were brought to the hospital, and one died there. Healso wouldn't release any names or conditions.
The shooting happened in Kennesaw, about 25 miles northwest ofAtlanta.
