Representatives of Navistar confirmed to the Springfield News-Sun that “an employee” has been suspended over the claim. The truck manufacturer said they continue to work with local authorities regarding an investigation into the incident.
A number of different agencies from across the county reached out to assist the sheriff’s office when they heard the call about a potential shooter, Clark said.
“We want to thank everyone who backed us up,” Clark said. “We had a lot of great resources from other agencies that were willing to step up.”
