Geddy Kramer was identified by police as an employee at the facility, a “package handler,” sources telling The Global Dispatch “He indeed worked at this location.”

Kramer was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. “When he was found we know that he had a shotgun. It was the only weapon he had at that time… He deceased from what we believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Sgt. Dana Pierce said.

Kramer was also armed with a knife and several Molotov cocktails that he didn’t use in the attack just before 6 a.m. in the town 30 miles northwest of Atlanta, police said.

“I saw him standing there and the knife was on the ground. He dropped his knife,” Liza Aiken told reporters, adding that the suspect was wearing all black except for a camouflage vest that made him look like “he was Rambo.”

“He had bullets strapped across his chest,” she said. “I mean, he looked like he was heading into war. As soon as I saw him, I ran the other way.”

All six victims were treated for shotgun wounds and three are reportedly in critical condition at the WellStar Kennestone Regional Medical Center.

    What’s interesting to note is the youth’s admission to fellow colleagues as to feeling overworked and not fairly compensated which raises the question did he indiscriminately shoot at those whom he harbored grudges at and are there other employees who feel that they too have been overworked?

    Interestingly why did the youth take on an action drama regalia, had he seen himself as an action hero righting wrongs?
