Man dies a day after killing 3 co-workers at NC lumber company

STAR, N.C. -- The man suspected of fatally shooting three co-workers and wounding a fourth at a North Carolina lumber company has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Ronald Dean Davis, 50, of Star, N.C., died Saturday morning at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, a day after he shot himself in the head, Montgomery County Sheriff Dempsey Owens said in a news release.
Authorities said Davis walked into McBride Lumber Company on Friday morning and opened fire, killing three and critically wounding one.
He then went home and shot himself. Officers found him slumped on his couch.
Co-workers at McBride Lumber described Davis as disgruntled and mentioned possible harassment by the victims, but the sheriff said the investigation into a motive continues, the Montgomery Herald reported.
He said Davis targeted his victims at the company, where 16 people were working when the shooting occurred.
