Women Suspended From Kraft Plant Kills 2 & Wound 3 (Video Inside)

PHILADELPHIA – A woman who had just been suspended from her job and escorted from a Northeast Philadelphia Kraft Foods facility returned with a handgun and opened fire Thursday, killing two people and critically injuring a third, police said.

Approximately 100 people were inside the building at the time of the shooting.

The suspected shooter was taken into custody about an hour later. She has been identified as 43-year-old Yvonne Hiller, Fox 29′s Steve Keeley reported.

Hiller had worked there for the last 15 years. Police said she was suspended Thursday night and returned less than 10 minutes later.

Police said she crashed her car through a fence and then entered the Kraft Foods building – formerly a Nabisco plant – on the 12000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard near Byberry Road as the 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. shift was coming to an end.

According to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, “8:35 is what we have recorded as the time she was escorted out. The call came in at 8:44 of a person with a gun … a .357 Magnum that she apparently reloaded. We did find some shell casings on the third floor.”

That’s where police said the shooting occurred. Sources told Fox 29 News the suspect shot one woman in the back of the head before then shooting the two others.

Sources also tell Fox 29 News that the two dead victims are women, and the wounded survivor is a man.

Police and SWAT soon swarmed the plant. The woman surrendered but not until she had fired through a wall at the first arriving officers.

“We’re very fortunate,” Ramsey said. “There were seven people actually trapped in close proximity to where she was actually taken into custody. They were hiding, and they were able to let us know where they were, and SWAT came in and were able to disarm her and extract them.”
