Two people were shot and killed Friday at the Sun-drop
Bottling plant in Concord, N. C.
The Charlotte Observer
reported that a SunDrop employee called 911 at 10 a.m. and told the
dispatcher that there were “two people down.”
Three to four people were in the building at the time of the
shooting, said Concord Deputy Police Chief Guy Smith. Smith has not yet released
the names of the victims, but one worked for the company according to the Associated Press.
Smith said the shooter walked into the plant around 10 a.m.
during what he believes was a robbery. The identity of the shooter is unknown,
but Smith told the Observer that he
was a black man, around 20 years old with shoulder-length dreadlocks wearing
blue jeans and a T-shirt.
The company was founded in 1954, and is run by the King
family, whose roots in soda bottling date back to 1904, the Observer reported.
