Xerox gunman kills seven

Suspect surrenders after co-workers executed in warehouse

Updated The man wanted by Hawaii police in connection with the killing of seven employees at the Xerox warehouse in Honolulu has given himself up. The man, named as Byron Uesugi, was said to be a copy machine repairman at Xerox -- the seven confirmed dead were all members of his work crew. All seven were men, they had been shot with a 9mm handgun. Five of the bodies were grouped together in a conference room, with two nearby. No other injuries were reported. The killer fled the scence of the crime in a Xerox van. Although details were sketchy at press time, some reports said Uesugi's neighbours described him as mild-mannered and a recluse. He is understood to have had 17 guns registered in his name and was a member of his high school shooting team. He gave himself up after a five-hour stand-off with police. A Xerox representative said there would normally only have been four people working in the warehouse but a meeting had been called, which led to there being more of Uesugi's colleagues present. ®
