SAN FRANCISCO - A laid-off worker returned to his former office in Northern California and opened fire Friday, killing three people before fleeing and leading police on an intensive search.
The suspect was identified as 47-year-old Jing Wu of Mountain View, who police say was an engineer at SiPort Inc., a semiconductor company.
Authorities identified one of the victims as Sid Agrawal, SiPort chief executive officer. The identities of the other victims were not released pending notification of family, said Santa Clara Police Sgt. Jerry Rodriguez.
Officers responded to the office complex late Friday afternoon and found the bodies of two men and one women, said Santa Clara Police Lt. Mike Sellers.
Police stopped cars and scoured the office park where SiPort is located in search of Wu. They also went to his Mountain View home, Rodriguez said.
Sellers described Wu as about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. Investigators believe he fled the complex in a silver SUV, possibly a rented Mercury Mountaineer.
"He could be anywhere," Sellers said. "He's considered armed and dangerous. If you see him don't approach him, call the police."
