Three Dead, Including Gunman, in Fresno Shooting

Fresno, Calif. - Three employees of a chicken processing plant in Fresno, Calif., are dead after one of them, 42-year-old Lawrence Jones, allegedly opened fire at the Valley Protein plant Tuesday morning. 

Police say Jones began shooting a few hours into his shift. Officers found him with a gunshot wound to the head and a 32-year-old woman bleeding from a wound to her lower back outside the business. 

Three other people were found shot inside the plant, which was formerly known as Apple Valley Farms.
