    One of the three people killed when a gunman opened fire at a Kansas plant was described by loved ones Friday as a loving father and a family man, NBC News reported.

    Josh Higbee, 31, was killed Thursday when Cedric Larry Ford concluded his 24-minute, two-town shooting spree at his workplace — Excel Industries, a lawn-care equipment manufacturer in Hesston. Ford was killed by police.

    Higbee had been working as a welder at the plant for a little under a year, his sister-in-law, LaShonda Hinson said Friday.

    Two others, identified by authorities as Renee Benjamin, 30, and Brian Sadowsky, 44, were killed in the shooting spree inside Excel. Ford apparently chose his victims at random, and shot and wounded two people while on his way to the plant, the Harvey County Sheriff's Office said.
