CUPERTINO (CBS / AP) — The family of the man who shot and killed three colleagues at a Silicon Valley cement plant and wounded six others says they are shocked and have no explanation for why the shooting happened.
In a statement released Saturday, Shareef Allman’s family members call the incident a “horrific tragedy” and express their condolences to the victims and their families.
They say the Allman they knew was a loving father and good man.
Allman was shot dead by sheriff’s deputies Thursday morning, a day after the shooting at Lehigh Southwest Cement plant, where he worked as a truck driver.
Authorities have not released any details about a possible motive, other than to say that Allman was disgruntled.
