By Dana Ford


(CNN) -- Authorities are working reports of at least four different crime scenes in connection with a workplace shooting Thursday afternoon at Excel Industries in Hesston, Kansas, said Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton.

"There could be as many as three or four others (dead), and possibly up to 20 people that have been injured," Walton said.

The suspected shooter, an employee at Excel, was killed.

The sheriff told reporters that authorities first received a report of a man having been shot while driving. Second, a person was reported shot in the leg. Third, a report came in about a shooting in the parking lot of Excel. Finally, an active shooter was reported inside the workplace, Walton said.

The shooter was not identified.

"This will take some time to worth through this," Walton said, citing the number of crime scenes and people involved.
