One construction worker was killed and other was critically wounded after being shot as they worked on a playground at an elementary school in Overland Park, Kan.
The Kansas City Star reports that the shooting occurred Tuesday morning during a quarrel the men had with another worker outside Sunrise Point Elementary School in the Blue Valley School District. No students were at the school at the time of the shooting.
Todd E. Davis, 48, of Lee's Summit, Mo., was killed. Efren J. Gomez, 54, was wounded and remained in critical condition Thursday, authorities say.
A co-worker suspected in the shooting was arrested a few hours after the incident. Anthony D. Grable, 32, was charged Thursday with premeditated first degree murder, attempted premeditated first degree murder, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of burglary.
Police say the three men were employees of a contractor doing installing synthetic turf on the playground outside the school. The motive for the attack was unclear, police say.
A witness told police that the men were quarreling over tools at the work site prior to the shooting.
