A woman and her grandmother were shot dead by a colleague as they arrived for work at a factory that makes seats for Subaru.
Promise Mays, 21, and her 62-year-old grandmother, Pamela Sled, were due to work the evening shift at NHK Seating yesterday (August 18).
However, as they arrived at the Indiana plant, they came across co-worker Gary Ferrell II, who was in the carpark with a gun.
The 26-year-old opened fire on the pair before leaving them for dead and attempting to flee the scene in a blue Ford Focus.
He was apprehended following a brief police chase and placed under arrest.

County sheriff, Rich Kelly said: ‘We do have two people that are deceased – they’re dead here at the facility.
‘One of my sheriff’s deputies engaged the suspect and was in a short pursuit of the suspect.
‘We were able to get him stopped between 45 seconds to a minute.’
Production has been temporarily shut down as a result of the incident.
According to NHK’s website, the company employs around 700 people and makes and designs seats for cars.
Subaru, which has a plant in nearby Layafette, Indiana, is among the firm’s major clients.
