Chrysler factory employee stabs co-worker to death before killing himself
A worker was stabbed to death this morning after an argument inside a Chrysler Group LLC plant in Detroit and a man suspected of the killing was later found dead, apparently having shot himself, police and the company said.
Work at the Jefferson North Assembly plant was suspended for one shift. The plant will reopen for its second shift this afternoon, Chrysler said.
"Two employees were involved in an altercation inside the plant," Chrysler said in a statement. "One employee was stabbed and unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene."
Shortly after the stabbing, Detroit police said, the body of the man suspected in the stabbing was found in a vehicle not far from the plant. He apparently had shot himself, police said.
Chrysler makes two sport utility vehicles at the plant, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango.
Detroit police did not comment on the motive for the stabbing. Law enforcement authorities and the company were due to hold a news conference on the incident this afternoon.
