HONOLULU -- Seven people were killed Tuesday at a Xerox office building in
Honolulu, apparently shot by a disgruntled former employee armed with a
pistol, police said.

An ambulance dispatcher who would not give his name confirmed that seven
people died in the shootings at the Xerox building on North Nimitz Highway
shortly after 8 a.m. local time (1 p.m. EST).

Police said the gunman walked into the building housing Xerox offices in a
light industrial section of Honolulu and began shooting.

The suspect fled in a Xerox company van, according to witnesses. The van was
later found abandoned.

Police evacuated another Xerox building in downtown Honolulu as a precaution
in case the gunman was headed that way. The names of the dead were not
immediately known.
