Henry Pratt Parent Company Holds News Conference Following Aurora Shooting


VICTIMS. THERE WAS A PRESS CONFERENCE. WE HAVE REACTION FROM ONE VICTIMS FAMILY MEMBER. Reporter: THEY EXPRESSED GREAT GRIEF AND ALSO APPRECIATION TO THE FIRST RESPONDERS WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE INCIDENT AND THEY ALSO GIVE US ADDITIONAL DETAILS AS TO EXACTLY WHY THE ACCUSED SHOOTER WAS ABOUT TO BE FIRED YESTERDAY. THE INDIVIDUAL WAS BEING TERMINATED FOR A COMBINATION OF VARIOUS WORKPLACE RULE VIOLATIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR AGREEMENT. I CAN ALSO CONFIRM THAT WE CONDUCTED A BACKGROUND CHECK WHEN HE WAS HIRED 15 YEARS AGO. IT DID NOT SURFACE HIS PRIOR FELONY CONVICTION IN MISSISSIPPI. HE WAS CALLED TO AN OFFICE TO BE FIRED AND THEY ARE REVIEWING EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO DETERMINE IF NEW PROCEDURES NEED TO BE PUT IN PLACE AND TRY TO DETERMINE IF ANYTHING CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING GOING FORWARD. I WANT TO SHOW YOU A PICTURE OF A VICTIM WHOSE FAMILY WE SPOKE TO EARLIER TODAY. THIS IS VINCENTE JUAREZ. THE 15 YEAR EMPLOYEE WHO WORKED IN RECEIVING MAY HAVE BEEN IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME WHEN THE SHOTS WERE FIRED. HE WAS DESCRIBED AS HUMBLE, HARD-WORKING, AND HE LEAVES BEHIND A GRANDCHILDREN, THREE CHILDREN OF HIS OWN. THEY REMAIN IN SHOCK. YOU SEE THIS ON THE NEWS AND YOU NEVER THINK IT WILL HAPPEN CLOSE TO HOME, AND WHEN I SAW IT ON THE NEWS I KNEW HE WORKED THERE BUT I NEVER IMAGINED. WHEN WE HEARD THE OTHER NEWS THAT EMPLOYEES WERE STILL INSIDE , WE STILL HAD HOPE AND WE THOUGHT HE WAS COMING OUT. Reporter: TONIGHT THE FAMILY IS ASKING FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND THE BUSINESS TOLD US THEY ARE WORKING WITH THE POLICE IN THE ONGOING
