MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police say the man who killed five people at a Minneapolis sign company last week had been fired for poor performance and lateness just before he started shooting.

A timeline released Monday by investigators says Andrew Engeldinger worked his normal shift at Accent Signage Systems last Thursday. Then at the end of the day, he was told to go to a meeting in the office of operations director John Souter. Engeldinger went to his car first.

Police say that after Engeldinger was told he was fired and handed his last paycheck, he pulled a gun and started shooting. He killed five people and wounded three others, including two who remain hospitalized.

Engeldinger went to the company's basement after the shooting and took his own life.
