ALHAMBRA (CBSLA) – A man who allegedly shot and killed one of his coworkers at a newspaper office in Alhambra was arrested Friday in what authorities are calling a case of workplace violence.

Alhambra police report that the shooting occurred at about 9:30 a.m. at the offices of the China Press, located in the 2100 block of West Mission Road.

Police responded to find a man with multiple gunshot wounds who later died at the scene. His name was not released.

The suspect was one of several people in China Press when officers arrived on scene and he was detained and later arrested. A gun was recovered, police said. His name was also not released.

Both men were colleagues, police said, but their exact relationship and a motive for the shooting was not immediately confirmed. The identities of both men have not been released.

Investigators believe the incident was confined to the two men, and no other parties were involved.

An editor at the China Press told CBS2’s Randy Paige close to 100 people work in the building, and about 70 percent of the building houses the China Press, a local newspaper that serves the Chinese community.
