ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The suspect in a workplace shooting that left three people in critical condition Monday evening has been found dead after a manhunt, reports the CBS affiliate here, KRQE-TV.

The suspect, Waid Anthony Melton, 30, was an employee of the Ben E. Keith Foods warehouse, police said.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and State Police helped Albuquerque police track him down:

Albuquerque police said Melton wasn’t there after they cleared the food and beverage warehouse, so they asked area residents to shelter in place.

Police said there were about 20 employees inside when gunfire broke out. The plant is a 24-hour operation. 

It wasn’t clear whether Melton was working or off when, police said, he opened fire on his co-workers. a man wearing a hat: Waid Melton in undated photo © Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. Waid Melton in undated photo
