Yvonne Hiller: Kraft Foods Shooting Suspect (Photos)

September 10, 2010

Yvonne Hiller is the Kraft Foods shooting suspect charged in the murder of two co-workers. Today we have more information on what may have allegedly driven her to commit such an atrocious act. Get the story here, and see photos and video below.

New reports today aim to paint a picture of what may have happened in the moments leading up to the deadly rampage. The AP reports that it all may have begun with an alleged ongoing feud between Hiller and a fellow employee.

It turns out that just minutes after being suspended from her position at the Kraft Foods plant, police say Yvonne Hiller returned with a gun and opened fire. Hiller allegedly took out her rage following a run-in with a co-worker in a mixing area.

A Lieutenant with the Philadelphia Police department said that shortly after she learned of her suspension she was “escorted out.” Moments later she busted through a security barricade with her car, and entered the building.

Not long after, she appeared on the third floor, headed into a break-room and fatally shot two female co-workers. A third victim, this one a male, was left critically injured after the shooting as well. Police say she then walked to a nearby office and called authorities herself.

The deadly rampage took place around 8:30PM Thursday in a Northeast Philadelphia plant.

After learning of the melee, officers quickly surrounded the building, and were able to trap the suspect in a room by herself. She apparently fired a shot at them as they attempted to apprehend with her. After less than an hour, officers successfully arrested her with no further injuries reported.

Kraft Foods released a statement following the tragedy:

“This is a sad day for the Kraft Foods family…Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. The loss of a loved one is a great sorrow.”

Yvonne Hiller is now facing charges including two counts of murder, and one count of attempted murder following this week’s shooting. Check out some related video below.

    I have been let go from jobs before, I just filed for unemployment and started looking for another job. Human lives are worth more than a job or career. Things like this can be handled by talking, writing and praying but violence and killing is not the answer.
