A man was killed in a shooting at an auto supplier’s factory near Detroit on Wednesday, police said.
An argument broke out between the employees on Wednesday morning. restrict Deputy Chief Darrell Patterson of the Highland Park Police Department said before the factory in Highland Park, Michigan, spilled into a gated parking lot that was set on fire.
A 40-year-old man was taken to hospital and pronounced dead, Patterson said. A 29-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene.
“It was a fight over tool and tool use,” Patterson said. “Several men got into a physical altercation. The fight was broken up by security and those employees sent home.”
Forvia spokeswoman Misty Matthews said the factory remains open but some employees have gone home after filming.
“Our priority is the safety of our team and how we can support them,” Matthews said in a statement. “We are working closely with local authorities as they conduct their investigations.”
The company laid off 268 workers at its factory as a result of moving metal processing to Mexico. Crane’s Detroit business reported on Tuesday. Patterson said there appeared to be no connection between the layoffs and the shootings. Cranes is an affiliate of car news.
Highland Park Police are investigating the incident.
