Here we go again. Another shooter, this time at least it wasn't some crazy white guy at least.

He also posted a video showing him shooting a rifle in a field in September 2015:

Cedric Ford Shooting Video

It’s not known if those weapons were used in the shooting. The photo was posted on February 15.

Cedric Larry Ford, a painter at Excel Industries, is accused of opening fire on co-workers at the Hesston, Kansas, company on Thursday before he was fatally shot, KWCH-TV reports.

Shootings also occurred at a location in nearby Newton, along with other areas in Hesston. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton said four people were killed, including Ford. Fourteen others were wounded, and at least five of those victims are in critical condition. One victim is in surgery and eight are in stable condition, he said.

“This is just a horrible incident that has happened,” Walton said. “There’s going to be a lot of sad people here.”

Ford, 38, was killed by a police officer at the manufacturing plant. The officer was the first to respond to the shooting and entered the building alone. He exchanged gunfire with the shooter, but was not shot. The officer’s name hasn’t been made public yet.

Walton called that officer a “hero” who saved lives.

The victims have not been identified.

The story is still developing. Here’s what we know so far about Ford and the shooting:

Cedric Ford’s partner at the plant said no one saw this coming in an interview live on KWCH-TV. He said he recently bought a new truck and there was no indication that anything was wrong. The co-worker said he talked to Ford earlier Thursday.

Another co-worker told the news station he was a “nice” guy and it didn’t seem like he would do something like this. Police have not said they have a motive for the shooting.

Ford lived in Newton, Kansas, the town where one of the shootings occurred. A trailer park there was swarmed by officers about an hour after the initial shootings, KWCH reported. Police with AR-15s and in body armor have swarmed the area, telling anyone in the home to come out with their hands-up. The sheriff said there is someone in the house where Ford lived, refusing to come out.

It's weird how they never identity the victims.

Naming victims often shows motive.

He had a (mud shark) girlfriend. Wft?
