KANSAS CITY, Kan., July 3 (UPI) -- A sixth person died Saturday after he was seriously wounded in a shooting spree at a food plant in Kansas City, Kansas, CNN reported.

Police Chief Ronald Miller said police don't know why Elijah Brown, 21, opened fire at the ConAgra plant Friday. Brown and four others were dead at the scene.

"We can't determine with certainty all the things that occurred because all the people that could tell us that either haven't or are unable to," Miller said. "Obviously, there's a motive for this. Why exactly, or what pushed him to do this, we really don't know."

"This is in effect a murder-suicide case," Miller said. "We have differing reports of the circumstances, but this is an employee who was in a meeting with others and afterwards produced a weapon and shot the other co-workers."
