MINNEAPOLIS- Authorities say the gunman who opened fire at a Minneapolis sign-making company and killed five people began shooting after being told he was fired.

Police said Friday that 36-year-old Andrew Engeldinger killed five people and wounded at least three others before turning the gun on himself Thursday afternoon at Accent Signage Systems.

Police initially said Engeldinger had been fired Thursday morning, then returned to the business late that afternoon. But police revised their account Friday as they pieced together accounts from several witnesses.

Capt. Amelia Huffman says it appears Engeldinger got a letter of reprimand in the mail, came into the office Thursday afternoon and was then terminated. She says shots were fired after a struggle in the office.

The business owner was among those killed.
