ST. LOUIS (AP) — Relatives of a man suspected in a shooting spree at a St. Louis plant that left four people dead say the man they knew “never could have done this.”

Police believe 51-year-old Timothy Hendron of Webster Groves killed three co-workers before shooting and killing himself Thursday at the ABB Inc. plant in north St. Louis. Five others were wounded.

The family issued a statement Friday through attorney Scott Rosenblum.

It says, “The loving and caring person we knew as a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend could never have done this.” The statement also stressed that the family does not understand what happened to cause the tragedy.

Police also have not uncovered a motive.
