Police say a worker at a Con-Agra Foods plant in Indianapolis has died after he fatally shot a co-worker and then turned the gun on himself.

Police spokesman Michael Hewitt says the shooting "appears to be a murder-suicide."

Hewitt says the shooting in the break room of the plant on the city's northwest side was reported about 6:30 p.m. Friday. He says another person was in the break room and saw the shooting.

The man who shot himself died at the scene. The other man was taken to a hospital and died there.

Hewitt says investigators don't know the motive for the shooting. He didn't know what type of firearm was used.

Con-Agra manufactures brands including Banquet, Hunts and Chef Boyardee.

A spokeswoman didn't respond to a call seeking comment.
