Mass murder in Kansas

CNNMultiple people were killed Thursday in a series of shootings that ended at Excel Industries in Hesston, Kansas, Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton told reporters.

The suspected shooter, an employee at Excel, was killed.

"There could be as many as three or four others (dead), and possibly up to 20 people that have been injured," Walton said.

The shooter is not named, which to me says his first name is Muhammed. But we'll wait and see.

UPDATE: Well, maybe not:

Clayton Cramer quoting the fishwrap of record
A gunman who killed three people and injured more than a dozen at a Kansas manufacturing plant worked at that factory, and had been served with a restraining order just 90 minutes before he began his shooting spree, the county sheriff said Friday.

Sheriff T. Walton of Harvey County said at a news conference that the protection from abuse order, usually intended to keep perpetrators of domestic violence away from their victims, might have set off the rampage on Thursday. He identified the gunman as Cedric Larry Ford, 38, who died inside the plant in shootout with a police officer.

That restraining order sure was effective, though.
