UPDATED: Another shooting in a gun free zone

A lot of information besides that key fact can be found here:

HENDERSON, Ky. — An employee shot and killed four people at a plastics plant before killing himself early Wednesday, police said.

The shooting happened after an employee at Atlantis Plastics had an argument with a supervisor, Henderson police Lt. David Piller said.

In addition to the four deaths, Piller said two others, who were injured, were flown to hospitals in Evansville, Ind.

The employee used a handgun he retrieved during a break, Piller said. . . .

The Atlantis Plastics factory had a mass public shooting on June 25, 2008 in Henderson County, Kentucky.  A total of five people were murdered and one was injured in the attack.  I contacted the company's headquarters in Atlanta at (800) 497-7659 to ask them about rules governing concealed handgun within their factories.  The ban was part of the employee handbook.

I'm also looking for a source to confirm that it is a gun free zone. The best I've found is an article saying that under Kentucky law, employers are allowed to prohibit weapons, but it doesn't say whether Atlantis does.
