SUPERIOR, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska State Patrol says a man who was fired from a grain elevator returned later in the day and shot three people, killing two, before he was shot to death by another employee.

The patrol says the shooting happened Thursday afternoon at the Agrex Elevator in Superior.

A preliminary investigation found that 61-year-old Max Hoskinson, of Superior, was fired Thursday.

The patrol says he came back around 2 p.m. and shot three people before an employee retrieved a shotgun and shot Hoskinson, who died at a hospital.

One of the people shot by Hoskinson died later Thursday at a Lincoln hospital.

The other was treated and released at a Superior hospital.
