ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Officers raced past dead and injured bodies in a New Mexico manufacturing plant as they looked for a gunman who had wounded his girlfriend during a confrontation before fatally shooting two of her co-workers then himself.
Three others were wounded during Monday's rampage at Emcore Corp., which police say capped a bitter child custody dispute between the man and his girlfriend.
Authorities identified the gunman as Robert Reza, 37, a former employee at the Albuquerque plant. Reza had addresses in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque.
The girlfriend remained hospitalized in critical condition with gunshot wounds Monday night. Two of the other wounded people were in stable condition at University of New Mexico Hospital, while the third was treated and released, hospital spokesman Billy Sparks said.
No other names were released.
Police Chief Ray Schultz said the girlfriend had told co-workers she planned to report domestic violence to authorities. He said Reza acted alone.
"His primary target was his girlfriend at the facility," Schultz said. "He knew her routine and confronted her outside the business."
