uthorities in North Carolina say a gunman who shot and killed three people and injured a fourth in an early-morningworkplace shooting had specific victims in mind and did not choose them randomly, WFMY reports.

Three people were killed and a fourth, who identified the gunman to authorities, was injured, WFMY reports.
"I am under the impression that he knew who he went after," Owens says.
Davis was tracked to his home in Ether, N.C., where he was found with self-inflicted gunshot wounds and taken to a hospital.
Owens tells an afternoon news conference that Davis, who worked at the lumber warehouse, left a six-page note, but did not elaborate on its contents.

Montgomery County Sheriff Dempsey Owens says authorities are treating the shooting as a case of workplace violence. He says the shooter left a note, but did not elaborate, WFMY reports.
"It's a very quiet community," Owens says. "Everybody knows everybody and I don't know what would send a man off the edge to go and do such a heinous act this morning."
