Hot on the heels of the hostage situation at the Discovery channel comes new breaking news of a 43 year old woman, Yvonne Hiller, who shot 3 people, killing two and critically wounding one with a .357 Magnum. She was taken into custody within an hour.
Hiller appears to have had a history of having trouble getting along with co-workers. At the time of the shooting, it’s been reported that she was suspended from work, although not fired. The current story is that she was having altercations with workers before she was escorted off the premises, then got her gun, came back in, fired at an employee who was following her before her fatal killing spree.
Based on reports coming in so far, it doesn’t seem as if Kraft is a bad company to work for. In fact, it appears as if they were aware that she was having difficulty getting along with co-workers, but were trying to work with her. She was an employee at Kraft with a 15 year tenure.
At this time the name of the victims have not been released – nor is there currently information regarding the victims’ families or if they had children at home.
The fact that she had a .357 Magnum with her implies pre-meditation, even if it did start with a verbal altercation.
