At Least Two Dead, Six Injured After Workplace Shooting

KCBS News in San Francisco is reporting there has been a second shooting in Cupertino, Calif., in a parking lot at Homestead Road and Tantau Avenue.

It's unknown if that shooting is related to an earlier one Wednesday at a Cupertino quarry, where at least two people were killed when a worker opened fire. The parking lot is about five miles away from the quarry.

Another four people were badly wounded in the early morning shooting at Lehigh Permanente Cement Inc. and the suspect was not in custody, the Associated Press reported.

Officers in Santa Clara County report the shooter was on foot and may be armed with an AK-47, according to emergency service scanners. KGO-TV in San Francisco reports an employee allegedly showed up at the morning safety meeting armed with an automatic rifle and handgun and began firing.

The shooter reportedly contacted police with a radio at the site and threatened to continue shooting, a TV station reported.

The quarry is located in the hills above Cupertino.

Phone calls to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department were not immediately returned.
