    HENDERSON, Ky. — The CEO of a company that operates a western Kentucky plastics plant where an employee opened fire after an argument says a sixth person died Wednesday.
    Atlantis Plastics CEO Bud Philbrook says the killings are just a "total shock."
    The employee began arguing with a supervisor around midnight, then shot the supervisor before opening fire in a break room, according to Philbrook. He initially shot and killed four people and wounded two, one critically, before turning the gun on himself.

    Authorities said Wesley N. Higdon of Henderson was so riled by the argument with his supervisor that he called his girlfriend and told her that he wanted to kill his boss.
    The girlfriend didn't warn anyone, police said, and just two hours later he argued with another co-worker at a gas station near the plant, then returned and shot and killed his supervisor as they walked outside. He went back inside and shot at co-workers in a break room and on the plant floor.
    A man who called 911 frantically described the violent scene early Wednesday to a dispatcher, tallying up the number of dead around him.
    "There's more than two people dead. There's like one, two, three, four, five people dead," the man said. "The supervisor is dead, too."
