Shooting at GM Engine Plant

04/15/97

Reuters reports that a GM worker shot and killed another employee in the parking lot of a GM Powertrain Group engine plant in Michigan, at about 5:50 a.m., last Friday morning. GM officials characterized the murder as a personal dispute.

Joseph Lawrence, a spokesman for GM's Powertrain Group, said, "we know the person was reporting to work and the other person was waiting for him." He added that both men knew each other. Police in Flint, Michigan later apprehended the killer, said Lawrence, but he did not release any names and referred other questions to Flint police.

GM said that the shooting did not interrupt production at the plant, which makes V-6 engines for a variety of GM cars.
