Hesston Factory Reopens after Employee Shooting that Killed 3

KSAL StaffMarch 8, 2016

A Kansas lawn equipment factory will open for business for the first time since a gunman fatally shot three employees at the Hesston facility in February.

KSNW-TV reports that Excel Industries will resume operating Thursday. Employees and their families are invited for an open house to tour the facility Wednesday.

Employees will be required to show identification for the tour.

The company has been closed since the Feb. 25 shooting that left three dead and 14 injured. Police fatally shot the suspect, employee Cedric L. Ford.

The company set up a hotline offering to help employees after the incident. So far the facility has only been reopened to allow employees to gather their belongings.
