(SOURCE)   An employee killed up to four people and wounded as many as 20 others in a shooting spree that ended at his work site in Hesston, Kansas, on Thursday where he was shot and killed by authorities, the local sheriff told reporters.

The gunman appears to have opened fire at three locations before entering the building of a lawnmower manufacturer where he worked, Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton said at a news conference.

The shooter, identified by a dispatcher with the Sheriff’s Office as 38-year-old Cedric Ford, began his attacks at about 5 p.m. local time in the town of Newton, where a man driving a truck was shot in the shoulder, Walton said.

Soon after, the suspect shot a person in the leg on another street on the way to his worksite at Excel Industries in Hesston, less than 9 miles (14 km) northwest of Newton, where he opened fire again in the parking lot, Walton said.

The gunman entered Excel Industries and continued his shooting spree, the sheriff said.

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

The shooter killed three or four people, and wounded as many as 20 others before he was killed by authorities, the sheriff said.

The series of shootings about 35 miles (60 km) north of Wichita come less than a week after a Michigan man who worked as a driver for car-hailing service Uber [UBER.UL] was charged with killing six people during a shooting rampage.

A number of mass shootings in the United States have elevated gun control as a campaign issue in the November U.S. presidential election.

A spokesman for the local Via Christi Hospital St. Francis said they have taken in six patients from the shooting, with five in serious condition and one in fair condition.

Wesley Medical Center is treating three patients, said the facility’s spokeswoman Susan Burchill. She had no further details.

“Please send your thoughts and prayers to the people of Hesston tonight,” Kansas Governor Sam Brownback said in a statement.

An employee at the business told local television station KSN that she was just steps away from the shooter before she made her escape.

“I’ve been through quite a bit but nothing like that; that’s terrifying,” the woman, who did not give her full name, told the station.

    Man killed family of four in Washington State today, horrible!!! these are Satanic portals opening up and wiii continue to open up in our nation. What I’m saying about portals opening up is this: The mind has moral restraints put in it by the teaching and protection of God’s word, It’s like a barrier of sorts some call it a conscience. Satan is having his demons attack and break through the barriers in vulnerable minds of people and causing them to set aside restrainta in the spirit and act on what they are being influenced to do in the flesh.

    Also , there is a new movie out by Fox called “The Witch” I am expecting grave, evil, violent, demonic acts to begin to happen all across our nation as a result of millions of people setting in theaters watching this movie. This movie is releasing demons through and into the human habitat dimension to influence and control peoples minds in order for them to respond to satan’s evil plans to hurt and destroy others. It’s hard to believe that with all the violence now in our country that people are more and more attracted to the occult, and demonic movies. Sad to say, there is coming a lot more, this may even bring down our nation as a civil society.
    Yours Truly,

      Thank you Ethin!

      I agree with what you have said. Satanic portals, people open themselves up to demonic influence and possession! We are seeing more of it manifesting into our physical dimension, no doubt in my mind, I can see it, feel it, and sense it brother.

      The closer I become to the Lord, the more that I can sense these things, and I can sure sense a lot more of it each day!

      Has the Fox network become Satanically possessed?! They came out with the television series called “Lucifer”, they also had the “X-files” (conditioning peoples minds to an alien invasion, and now a movie called “The Witch”?

      God bless! Maranatha!
