    Default Investigators probe what set off truck employee

    (AP) LAKE BUTLER, Fla. - Investigators in a small Florida town worked Sunday to determine what led a longtime trucking company employee to go on a shooting spree that left the man, his former boss and a former coworker dead _ and two others wounded.

    Hubert Allen Jr., 72, drove to several locations around Union County, including the headquarters for Pritchett Trucking Inc. and shot the men Saturday, according to a Union County Sheriff’s Office news release. It added that authorities believe Allen acted alone.
    Investigators were working at the five shooting scenes and interviewing witnesses and company employees. The sheriff’s statement said they were working to determine a motive. The sheriff’s office also called in investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to help with the various shooting scenes.

    Former trucking company employee kills boss, co-worker, himself

    Sounds like it's still a complete mystery as to why he did this.
    On Sunday, residents in this close-knit community near Jacksonville mourned and tried to piece together what happened. Police didn't release any new details or information on a possible motive.

    "Mr. Hubert was a real quiet guy," said the Rev. Patrick Maxwell of the Victory Christian Center. "He wasn't the type who would go around and say I have a grudge against anyone."

    Maxwell said he visited Allen's daughter and grandchildren after the shootings. The family was as surprised as the rest of the town and had no idea what sparked the shootings, Maxwell said.

    Allen's wife died in the late 1990s and he lived alone. Maxwell said he had developed a serious heart disease and his church had prayed for him recently. Allen, 72, didn't attend the church, but his daughter and grandchildren did.

    It wasn't yet clear why Allen stopped working for Pritchett Trucking Inc.

    He is 72 years old and still driving a truck I guess that's one of the benefits of being a R.T.W. State
