    UPS Driver dead in Work place shooting in MN

    There was a work place shooting earlier this evening in Mpls. Almost all of the news stories and online stories show a photo of a UPS truck backed up to the dock, wrapped in crime scene tape.

    I hope one of our UPS brothers/sisters was not a victim.

    Also hope our guy is okay, I'm hoping our truck was just there for the cops to get a statement from the driver.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families

    In all seriousness, unless the driver had given this guy problems in the past, or tried to intervene in the shooting, it would be surprising if he was. Workplace shootings aren't like Columbine shootings. The perp normally shoots those he has an agenda with.

    Local news is reporting that the driver was one of the victims.

    Probably find out who this morning. Sad day at the Broadway building in Mpls.

    I saw this earlier today. I had no idea a UPS driver was involved. What a whack job. Makes you realize that petty bs is just that. My heart goes out to the family.

    I think I'm going to go hug Brodie. This stuff makes you realize that you need to tell the people important to you that they matter. They need to hear it before it's too late.

    Do I really have to go where? You are far too PC for my taste, check yourself please. What happened is terrible without a doubt. I am trying to imagine how long he was supposed to be at that stop which I don't think is out of line at all.

    The guy in that video was really annoying. I had to shut it off once he started "analyzing" the situation...
