GENERAL DYNAMICS COOPERATING WITH SAN DIEGO POLICE OVER PLANT SHOOTING
 SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Corporation (NYSE: GD) is continuing to cooperate with the San Diego Police Department in its investigation of the shooting incident at the company's Lindbergh Field Facility yesterday.
 George Roos, vice president of human resources at the Convair Division, speaking for all company employees at a late evening news conference on Jan. 24, said, "We want to express our terrible grief at the tragedy that occurred this afternoon. We are all greatly affected by an event of this magnitude. This is a very, very difficult time for all of us, particularly those who were closest to the shooting."
 The company is in contact with the families of the victims and will continue to provide services and support in the days ahead. Crisis teams are preparing today for employees returning to work on Monday, Jan. 27. Counseling will be offered throughout the three divisions of the company in San Diego.
 The precise sequence of events is the subject of police investigation. The company was able to confirm that the man in custody was a missile assembler who began working for Convair in 1968. He was terminated for poor attendance Jan. 15 and was at the plant on Jan. 24 for a grievance meeting with union and company representatives to address the reasons for his termination.
 Roos paid tribute to the many employees who displayed personal courage during Friday's incident. "During the frantic and extremely tense minutes after the shootings, our employees displayed magnificent and selfless courage in trying to aid the injured victims," Roos said.
 Company witnesses were questioned Friday evening by the San Diego Police Department and released.
