CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA — A disgruntled employee has shot and killed one and injured another, and has since taken numerous people hostage at a restaurant.

CNN reports that the disgruntled employee has been shot and is in critical condition.

“This is not act of terrorism,” Mayor John Tecklenburg told reporters Thursday. “This is not a hate crime. It’s a disgruntled employee who has come on the scene of his employment.”

The hostages are now free and unharmed.

A person with colleges inside the restaurant at the time of the incident said that he was texting back and forth with a manager.

John Aquino, who works in the Virginia’s building, says he had colleagues inside. He said a manager was texting him from inside a closet during the hostage situation.

“I heard that a dishwasher got fired and came back in and shot the chef,” said Aquino. “There were some people in there and there were a couple of hostages.”

It is reported that about 30 people were inside the restaurant at the time of the attack.

Anytime that I am in a restaurant, I specifically ask for a seat that has a clear view of the entire floor. Why? Because it would give me an advantage if a lunatic such as this man came in to do harm.
