MSNBC.COM - The suspect in a fatal shooting at a California quarry has been shot and killed after a massive manhunt, KNTV reported Thursday.

Shareef Allman, believed to be the gunman who fired shots at a meeting at a cement plant on Wednesday, was killed in Santa Clara, KNTV said. Sheriff's deputies reported that multiple shots had been fired.

There were no other immediate details made available.

The shootings and subsequent manhunt had stunned Allman's friends. They described him as a devoted single father of two, a strong Christian and the author of a novel about the evils of domestic violence.

The portrait of Allman, 47, being painted by those who know him diverged strongly from the man authorities suspect in the fatal shooting of three co-workers at a cement plant on Wednesday. Seven others were also injured in the attack, some critically, authorities said.

"If you live in San Jose, you could not help but know him. He had a great smile, and he lit up the room. He was such a peaceful man," said Rev. Jeff Moore of the NAACP's San Jose-Silicon Valley chapter. "It's not making any sense to us, and it hurts us to the core. We want to do whatever we can to bring him home."

Before Allman was caught, his friends pleaded for him to turn himself in while sounding mystified that the man they knew could resort to such brutal behavior.

Allman became upset during a safety meeting at Permanente Quarry, said Santa Clara County sheriff's Lt. Rick Sung. Allman left the meeting and returned with a handgun and rifle and started shooting people , Sung said. About 15 workers were at the meeting.

Sheriff Laurie Smith released the names of the dead Wednesday evening as Manuel Pinon, 48, of Newman, Calif., and John Vallejos, 51 and Mark Munoz, 59, both of San Jose.

Six others at the quarry were wounded and taken to hospitals, where some remained in critical condition, Smith said. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
