Crete: A man shot and wounded three people at a cold-storage facility where he worked before apparently shooting and killing himself, authorities said.

Saline County Sheriff Alan Moore told the Lincoln Star
Journal that about 35 people were at the Americold Logistics
facility when the gunman opened fire at about 10 pm yesterday.
The gunman, whose identity hasn`t been publicly released,
worked at the plant, Moore said.

Moore said about 50 officers responded to reports of
the shooting, unsure of whether the shooter was still a
threat.

"When we first came across him, it appeared that it
was a self-inflicted wound that ended it," the sheriff said,
referring to the gunman.

Two of the wounded were taken to a hospital and the
other was treated at a local medical center. Their names and
conditions weren`t available. It was unclear whether they also
worked for Americold.

Neither the sheriff nor a company spokesman
immediately returned a call today from a news agency.
