Survivor Says Killer Was A Model Employee

April 22, 2006 - Posted at 12:36 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ A man who survived a workplace shooting says

the gunman had not caused any trouble while working at his business

for the last five years.

Charlie Finninger survived Thursday's shooting after employees

pushed him into a cooler at the St. Louis catering business.

But shooter Herbert Chalmers killed Finninger's 79-year-old wife

and the couple's 44-year-old daughter.

Chalmers injured a third employee before committing suicide in

the company parking lot.

Earlier, police say Chalmers had killed the mother of his four

children and a woman who was in a former girlfriend's apartment.

Finninger says Chalmers worked in the kitchen and occasionally

drove a truck for the caterers. Finninger told the St. Louis

Post-Dispatch that there were NO signs of problems.
