BIRMINGHAM, AL - Police say the man who killed two people and himself inside a UPS warehouse in Alabama had been fired from the company just a day earlier.

Police Lt. Sean Edwards said Tuesday that one of the victims had been a supervisor at the warehouse.

Neither the gunman nor his two victims have been named, and Edwards says police are still trying to reach their families.

Police said earlier in the day that the gunman was wearing UPS uniform when he opened fire Tuesday morning.
