KSDK -- St. Louis police released the names of the three victims killed Thursday in the ABB Power shooting and confirmed the suspect's identity.

Police said Timothy Hendron shot Carlton Carter, 57, of St. Louis in the head. He was found outside the building. Terry Mabry, 55, of Moscow Mills, was shot in the leg and head and was found outside the building. Cory Wilson, 27, was shot in the shoulder and in the head and was found inside the building. The three victims died at the scene.

Five other people who were injured during the shooting were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Police said a 55-year-old man and a 51-year-old man were listed in critical condition. A 56-year-old man and a 51-year-old man were listed in fair condition. A 52-year-old man was released.

All the victims were employees of ABB.

Police said Hendron, of Webster Groves, shot himself underneath the chin and died at the scene.

St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom said three weapons were recovered from the scene. They included an assault rifle, shotgun and handgun. He said his officers fired no shots during the ordeal. He thanked a quick response by police for possibly preventing more shootings.

ABB executives were working with police to give them all the information they can on the alleged shooter and his status at the company. Chief Isom said the facility will remain closed until the investigation is complete.

Police said 40 to 50 people were on the complex when the shooting started. Some of them fled to the roof to escape the shooting. Around 200 people are employed there.
