EAST GREENVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A man opened fire at a furniture plant where he worked, killing a floor manager and injuring another person, police said.

The man who was suspected of the shootings was identified by police as Michael Tompkins, 23. He remained at large early Thursday. Police said the shooting Wednesday night at Knoll Inc. appeared to have followed a workplace dispute.

Authorities said three people were in the Knoll office when the gunman walked in and started shooting.
