Fiddler’s Elbow Employee Commits Suicide After Shooting Coworker

 

Fiddler’s Elbow, a Bedminster, New Jersey Country Club, is dealing with tragedy today, after an employee shot one of his coworkers, and then killed himself.

The Star-Ledger reports that 59-year-old Francisco Jimenez attacked a 37-year-old groundskeeper at the entrance to the club early Monday morning, shooting him twice “in the upper body.”  Jimenez fled the scene and within an hour, turned the gun on himself at a park near his home in Orange, New Jersey.  Paramedics pronounced Jimenez dead at the scene.  The groundskeeper, identified only as a Plainview resident, was recently upgraded from critical to stable condition at a local hospital.  The club says Jimenez and the groundskeeper were both seasonal employees.

The report cites a “work-related dispute” as the impetus for the attack, but offers no further specifics.  We’ll provide more details on this sad and bizzare story as they become available.
