Cupertino quarry reopens after shooting spree
CUPERTINO, Calif. (KGO) -- A limestone quarry in Cupertino is open again, for the first time since three employees were killed and six more were injured in an employee shooting spree.
A statement from the Texas-based company that owns the Lehigh Southwest cement plant says the plant is once again open and hopes to be fully operational within a week.
Last Wednesday a truck driver at the plant -- Shareef Allman -- went on a shooting rampage after complaining of racial discrimination. He was ultimately shot to death the following day in Sunnyvale, by Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies.
Local 287 has set up a trust fund for the Cupertino quarry victims and their families at United Labor Bank (2550 N. First Street, San Jose, CA 95131-1038) under the name Teamsters Local 287/Lehigh Hanson Victims Fund.
Anyone wanting to donate can send donations to any United Labor Bank or to Teamsters Local 287, 1452 N. Fourth Street, San Jose, CA 95112.
