A worker at Timberland Ford who'd called in sick later crashed his Nissan into the showroom and shot two colleagues with a shotgun.
Earl Edward Clague Jnr went on a shotgun rampage at the Timberland Ford car dealership in Taylor County, USA, wounding two colleagues before he was shot and killed by a police deputy who just happened to be at the dealership at the time getting his patrol car fixed.
Clague had worked at the business for more than 15 years.
The deputy, Robert Lundy, was wounded by Clague before he was able to kill the attacker.
Police found a second shotgun and ammunition in Clague's Nissan, and believe he intended to shoot as many fellow dealership staff as possible.
