PINSON, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a man working his first shift at a manufacturing plant near Birmingham was shot to death by a fellow employee.
A statement by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department says deputies found the body of a man who had been shot multiple times when they responded to a call on Wednesday shortly after midnight.
Authorities say 29-year-old John Eric Cole was in his first day on the job when he was killed, and the suspect also worked there. The statement says 34-year-old Dexter Rashad Walker was arrested after turning himself in to deputies at the scene. A company statement says the suspect and the victim knew each other outside the workplace.
