Last Thursday, a disgruntled former grain elevator employee returned to the office where he had been fired earlier that day and opened fire with a handgun.

Max Hoskinson, 61, shot three people before another Agrex employee returned fire, killing him.

Sandra Nelson, 60, of Formoso, KS, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

Darin Koepke, a 53-year-old Hadar man, died later Thursday night after being transported to a hospital in Lincoln. Both were employees of Agrex Elevator in Superior, NE.

The State Patrol declined to identify the Agrex employee who shot Hoskinson, but Patrol Capt. Jeff Roby said the employee's quick action likely saved lives.

Hoskinson was pronounced dead at the hospital.
