Spring Lake Park resident Keith Basinski was shot dead as he stood in his UPS truck at a Minneapolis sign company's loading dock Sept. 27, according to a new timeline from the Minneapolis Police Department.
A Minneapolis police chronology of the victims of the shootings at Accent Signage says that Basinski was the fifth to be shot of the five people who died in gunman Andrew Engledinger's rampage:
- Five others were shot before Basinski—four died and one, John Souter, remains at Hennepin County Medical Center.
- Two others were shot after Basinski—one was treated and one, Eric Rivers, is in critical condition at HCMC.
Engledinger, who had been fired immediately before he started shooting, then went to the building's basement and shot himself, police said.
The timeline and chronology—released along with an FAQ document Monday afternoon—aren't completely clear about exactly where Basinski was shot and died.
According to the timeline:
"In the loading dock area, Engeldinger shot Ron Edberg. He then turned [and] shot UPS driver Keith Basinski who was standing in his truck at the loading dock’s edge."
According to the victim chronology:
Keith Basinski (UPS) was shot [in] the loading dock. He died at the scene.
Basinski's death prompted an outpouring of grief and remembrances from his customers, family and friends, in news reports and online comments and on social media.
Memorial services have been announced for some victims, but not for Basinski as of Monday afternoon. A memorial fund in Basinski's name has been established at a Coon Rapids bank, and another fund for families of all the Accent Signage shooting victims was also set up.
