U.S. Attorney Urges Awareness Of Threats Of Violence In The Workplace

BIRMINGHAM -- U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said the thoughts and prayers of the U.S. Attorney's Office are with UPS employees and the families of those who died today in a shooting at the company's customer service center and warehouse in Inglenook.

"It is a tragedy that, too often, someone decides to settle a workplace dispute with a gun and innocent people suffer and die," Vance said.

U.S. Attorney Vance encourages anyone who is aware of a threat of violence in a workplace or school to contact the local police department, sheriff or federal law enforcement.
