Brother of Henderson shooting gunman expresses his sorrow

The brother of the gunman in a Kentucky Plastics Plant shooting is expressing his sorrow.

Police say 25-year-old Wesley Higdon shot and killed five of his co-workers at the plant in Henderson on Wednesday.  He then turned the gun on himself.

Chris Higdon says he saw his brother three weeks ago and is still in shock over the shooting:  "Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are going out to all the victims and their families.  You know I feel so awful about this, and I hate it, and I want, I want them to know, you know, that we're sorry."

Police think the shooting happened after an argument between Higdon and his supervisor.  Another employee was wounded in the shooting.

The plant makes parts for refrigerators and plastic siding for homes.
