The shooter used a 9mm handgun and gave trouble to a 36-year old male, a 32-year old woman, both of them are in critical condition and a 27-year old woman who didn’t get any serious injury.

Approximately, 1,100 people work in the complex and several employees were evacuated on the same afternoon when the incident happened.
