Minneapolis gunman was mentally sick: Family
September 30, 2012

MINNEAPOLIS: The man who killed five people and himself after being fired by a Minneapolis company suffered from mental illness, his family said on Friday.

Andrew Engeldinger’s family released a statement expressing sympathy for the families of those he killed and wounded in Thursday’s shooting spree at Accent Signage Systems.

The family said he had struggled with mental illness. “This is not an excuse for his actions, but sadly, may be a partial explanation,” the family said.

Police investigators said they found another gun and 10,000 rounds of ammunition at Engeldinger’s house.

The dead included Reuven Rahamim, 61, Accent’s owner; Keith Basinski, 50, of Spring Lake Park, Minn., a UPS driver who made a delivery there late Thursday afternoon; and three Accent employees, Rami Cooks, 62, of Minnetonka, Jacob Beneke, 34, of Maple Grove, and Ronald Edberg, 58, of Brooklyn Centre.
