The shooting began at 1:24 p.m. at Henry Pratt Company, a 29,000-square-foot manufacturing warehouse at 641 Archer Ave. in west suburban Aurora, according to Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman.

- Vicente Juarez, of Oswego, Ill., a stock room attendant and fork lift operator who had been with the company since 2006;
- and Josh Pinkard, of Oswego, Ill., a plant manager from Alabama who moved to Aurora last year.
