AURORA, Ill., Feb 16 - A gunman who killed five fellow workers at an Illinois factory on Friday had just been terminated, and the plant manager and a human resources official were among his victims, authorities said on Saturday.

Gary Martin, 45, armed himself with a pistol before reporting for a meeting where he was told he was fired, Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman told a news conference. She said most of his victims were in the same room, and that multiple spent rounds were found at the scene.
