Plant, schools on lockdown after gunman shoots employee

A suspect allegedly shot an employee at the Dart Container manufacturing plant in Conyers, Goergia.

According to Deputy Lee Thomas, spokesman for Rockdale County Sheriff department, police officers responded to shots fired call at a dart Container Corp plant at 6.58 am.

According to the Rockdale County Sheriff, the suspect was captured and arrested hours after the shooting at a Greyhound bus station in Birmingham. Golden will face murder charges, he said. "Please be patient as we work to obtain more details and information as it relates to this ongoing situation". Levett said investigators believe Golden entered the plant, shot Andrews and then left in the five-minute window before police arrived at the factory, which makes plastic food and beverage containers.

Andrews was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
