Associated Press Release

LAKE BUTLER, Fla. (AP) -- Florida investigators say that a former trucking company employee who went on a weekend shooting rampage that left him and two others dead left a handwritten note with a list of his victims.

The Union County Sheriff's Office reports that three days of interviews with people who knew 72-year-old Hubert Allen Jr. hasn't turned up a motive for Saturday's shooting spree centered around Prichett Trucking Inc. But investigators found the note listing the victims at Allen's house.

After killing his former boss and another co-worker and wounding two others, Allen killed himself at his nearby home.

Prichett Trucking's website said it employs 400 people and owns hundreds of vehicles that operate nationwide.

A news release from the Union County Sheriff's Office says gunman Hubert Allen Jr. drove to several locations Saturday morning and shot the four men. Three of them were Allen's former co-workers at Pritchett Trucking Inc., and the fourth was company owner Marvin Pritchett.

The sheriff's office says the gunman fatally shot Pritchett and Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado.

One of the wounded men was in critical condition and the other was in good condition.

Investigators declined to discuss a motive. Messages left seeking further comment from the sheriff's office weren't immediately returned.
