“An Apple Inc employee was found dead on Wednesday at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters, police said, with local media reporting that the victim had suffered a head wound and a gun was discovered near his body,” Julia Love reports for Reuters.
“Sergeant Andrea Urena of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office told reporters at a press conference that deputies were called to Apple’s main offices in Cupertino at 8:35 a.m. PDT (1535 GMT),” Love reports. “‘”When deputies responded to the campus they found one individual male down and determined he was deceased,’ Urena said. ‘Further investigation determined that no other individuals were involved. We believe this to be an isolated incident and that nobody else on campus or in the public is at risk,’ she added.”
Love reports, “‘We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple,’ the company said in a statement.”
