Police in California are looking for a man armed with multiple firearms who reportedly opened fire and began shooting at a Cupertino quarry on Wednesday, killing at least two people and critically injuring at least six more.

KGO-TV reported that it was an employee at the quarry who showed up for a morning safety meeting, fully armed, who began shooting at other workers.

The station says police confirmed that two people are dead and four are seriously wounded at Lehigh Permanente cement quarry in Santa Clara County, and that the shooter is still on foot.

According to NBC, the shooter called police with a radio from the quarry and threatened to kill more people.

Santa Clara authorities say the shooter may be armed with an AK-47.
