3 dead in New Mexico workplace shooting

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A gunman opened fire at an Albuquerque
fiber optics manufacturer Monday, killing two people and wounding
four others before turning the gun on himself in what police said
was a domestic violence dispute.
Earlier Monday, police Chief Ray Schultz said there were six
dead.
He explained at a news conference later that responding officers
had seen people down and believed they were dead, then continued
into the building to search for the gunman. Officers who arrived
later determined several shooting victims had survived.
Schultz also said there was confusion at University of New
Mexico hospital, where one victim died but was reported as two
deaths.
The shooting at Emcore Corp. appeared to involve the 37-year-old
gunman's girlfriend, Schultz said.
