Ford Employee Shot Dead Outside Kansas City Plant

One of Ford’s hourly workers never made it home after the night shift, as he was shot and killed in the parking lot of the automaker’s Kansas City plant, shortly after 4 a.m.

By the time they arrived at the scene, paramedics pronounced him dead, despite his co-workers efforts to stop the bleeding. According to an eyewitness, cited by Fox4KC, the shooter pulled the trigger twice and then fled the scene in a green Jeep Cherokee.

Local police states that this is an isolated incident and remains confident that whoever is responsible for claiming the man’s life, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed, will be brought to justice: “We have multiple solid leads to follow, and we’re going to follow them, and we will get this person responsible for it“, said Captain Will Akin, with the Clay County Sheriff’s Department.

Our hearts go out to the family and any of our employees that may have witnessed this horrible incident, and we are going to be here for them for they for whatever they need or whatever we can do to help them get through this tragic situation“, said Todd Hillyard, UAW Local 249 spokesperson.

Following the incident, day shift employees at the Kansas City Plant were not allowed to enter the parking lot, as investigators were still on the scene. A description of the suspect has yet to be released.

This is the second known shooting incident this summer that involves Ford’s employees, as two UAW local officials, representing the manufacturer’s workers at the Chicago Assembly Plant, were wounded in June, outside Local 551 union hall. The 50-year old man believed to be responsible for pulling the trigger, after an alleged argument, is in custody, awaiting trial.
