3 Killed, Including Gunman, in Alabama UPS Shooting

September 23, 2014  | 

Three people are dead -- including the gunman -- after a shooting this morning at a UPS facility in Inglenook, according to Birmingham officials.

The incident happened just before 9:30 a.m. as police received multiple calls of an active shooter at 4601 Inglenook Lane, the customer service center and warehouse. "Patrol units responded quickly; they rallied and made entry,'' Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper told AL.com. "They were able to clear the building and, of course, during the shooting, multiple employees exited the facility."

Once the officers arrived and entered the building, they found three dead people inside the business. "It appears it was the shooter, still wearing his UPS uniform, and two other employees,'' the chief said.

Police officials have not publicly named the shooter, but law-enforcement sources, family and church members identified him as 45-year-old Joe Tesney. He is married, and the father of two daughters.

This has been going on forever. With social media & news pirates lurking at every turn it has gotten to where one can't pass wind without being detected, and/or filmed.
