MANCHESTER, Connecticut — A warehouse worker who had been called in to resign his job at a beer distributor opened fire there Tuesday morning, a company executive said, and at least three people were wounded, one critically.

Manchester police Lt. Joe San Antonio would not confirm whether anyone was killed or what happened to the gunman. A fire at the warehouse, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Hartford, was put out.

Three people with gunshot wounds were taken to Hartford Hospital, said spokeswoman Michaela Donnelly. One was in critical condition, one was in fair condition and one person's condition was unknown, she said.

About 50 to 70 people were in the warehouse at the time of the 7 a.m. shooting because it was a shift change, said Brett Hollander, the director of marketing at Hartford Distributors.
