    FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Police are investigating a deadly shooting at a warehouse in South Fulton County.

    The shooting happened around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Flexible Industrial Solutions at 5110 Fulton Industrial Boulevard.  

    Channel 2's Tyisha Fernandes learned from police that the shooter and the victim were employees; one a full-time employee and the other a temp worker.

    Police said an employee came into work, said “good morning” to co-workers in the front of the building and after that, he went to the back, where the warehouse is, and opened fire.

    One person was killed.

    There was no discussion, no argument, no warning at all, police said. Police said the shooter left the scene.

    According to Alabama State police, the shooter was killed in a single vehicle crash hours later.


    Police aren't sure if the shooter was targeting a certain coworker or not, but they said they know he fired several shots.

    The company, where the shooting happened, makes metal piping and transfer systems.

    "Right now, there's a lot of unemployed people. They're stealing, shooting, killing. They're just doing it. They're unhappy. That's my point of view, but I'm trying to stay out of the line of fire. We try to look out for each other here," said Willie Brooks, who works at a steel yard on Fulton Industrial Boulevard.

    Police have not released the name of the shooter or the victim.
