2 Dead In Shooting Rampage
Friday Robert Diamond, 32, of
Diamond, who had worked at the warehouse as a forklift operator before he quit in April, told police he had to pay his rent Friday and was desperate, so he returned to his former job in a convoluted scheme to make money, Henry said. Diamond was expected to be arraigned on two counts of first-degree murder late Friday night.
Diamond lived just blocks from the warehouse, but had driven around for an hour before the crime as he planned the shooting spree, Henry said.
Henry said Diamond had told police that he felt he was unfairly reprimanded at the job in March 2008 when he allegedly called a black co-worker “boy.” Diamond is white, Woodson was black and Guadalupe was Latino. Henry said it was unclear if the shooting was race-related.
