In November of 1999, Byran Uyesugi brought a loaded semiautomatic pistol to the Xerox office building in Honolulu, Hawaii at which he worked. He killed his supervisor as well as six of his co-workers. He used a special kind of bullet designed to inflict higher tissue damage.

Why did he do it? Well, his employment at Xerox was problematic from the start, really; he had accused his coworkers of harassing him and sabotaging him. Eventually, he started making death threats. The guy definitely had anger management issues, and he had to undergo psychiatric evaluation.

The proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” seemed to be when he was required to be trained on a new Xerox machine model; he snapped as a result. The day after being told he would require the training, he went on his killing spree. There was a team meeting going on at the office at the time.
In 2000, Uyesugi was found guilty of first-degree murder. The sentence was life in prison, without the possibility of parole.

Forty-year-old Alex Huh was shot and killed in Hollywood in June of 2008. The killer? Another man with the last name of Huh, who was not related to the victim. The killer, 67-year-old Howard Huh, had worked for Alex Huh at the spa he owned. The shooting occurred during an argument between the two men; the argument was related to a dispute over the ownership of the business, over which there was a protracted legal battle.
Howard Huh, to his credit, turned himself into the Los Angeles Police after the shooting occurred, and he was sentenced to 40 years in prison when found guilty of second-degree murder.8. Andrew John Engeldinger

It was Thursday afternoon in late September of 2012 when Andrew John Engeldinger walked into Accent Signage Systems’ building in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a 9mm pistol. You know where this going.

Engeldinger was an employee of the firm, a sign-making business; when told on that fateful Thursday that he was being terminated, he used his pistol to kill the firm’s upper management, including the company founder. He also took out a UPS driver.

Engeldinger is not in prison for his crimes, however. He shot and killed himself in the basement of the warehouse of his former business.

Reportedly, Engeldinger was a “loner” who had poor relationships with his coworkers. Family members speculated that he had an untreated mental illness, which would explain why he did what he did.
