Robert Diamond, the fired worker charged with killing two employees at Simon & Schuster’s distribution center in Bristol on Aug. 1, said he had been harassed by co-workers and was upset about being reprimanded in March for calling a black co-worker “boy.”

Diamond was fired in April for absenteeism. Police said he showed up at the warehouse during a shift change and shot Angel Guadalupe, a temporary worker whom he did not know, and Reginald Wilson, a forklift driver. Diamond surrendered to Bucks County police at the scene.

Witnesses told police investigators that Diamond had threatened violence against co-workers in the past.

Note: The National Institute for the Prevention of Workplace Violence web site (www.workplaceviolence911.com) offers guidance on writing a workplace violence policy and a variety of violence prevention materials.
