Man Who Killed Mpls. Workers Warned For Tardiness
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The personnel file for a man who killed six people this fall at his Minneapolis workplace documents warnings he received for being chronically late.
Minneapolis police released company records Monday from Accent Signage. They show that Andrew Engeldinger was reprimanded for tardiness just a week before he went on a shooting rampage that left five co-workers and a UPS driver dead. Engeldinger then took his own life.
Minnesota Public Radio News reports Engeldinger was late to work 35 days in a row in August and September.
A week before the incident, the company’s quality control manager sent Engeldinger a letter calling his constant tardiness was a problem that needed to be “rectified immediately.” It was the most recent in a string of warnings he received.
