Update: 4:26 p.m. EDT–Springfield Police Chief Kenny Winslow confirmed two people were killed during the shooting and one is in critical condition. All three were Bunn-O-Matic employees.

Winslow also identified the suspected shooter as Michael L. Collins, 48, who the police chief said was an active employee of Brunn-O-Matic, as well. Collins was also shot and killed but Winslow couldn't confirm if the suspect shot himself.

Update: 2:06 p.m. EDT–Oakes told reporters officers and a SWAT team are still searching the building for additional suspects and victims. Since the facility is so large, he said the search will take time, but he confirmed there was at least one victim.

Although the search is ongoing and officers are acting as if the suspect is still on the scene, Oakes said it's "doubtful" the suspect is still there.
