Apple is not having a good week.
Santa Clara County Sheriff’s deputies are on the campus in Cupertino, CA, investigating the dead body of a Latino male who worked at the company. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the call came in to dispatch at 8:38 AM yesterday, reporting the incident as a “possible suicide.” TMZ reports:
According to the sheriff’s dispatch call there was a female employee involved in an argument on the campus, and had sustained a head wound — possibly from a gun — before Apple security escorted her out of the building.
As deputies were responding, they were unclear if there were multiple people involved. At one point cops describe a body being found in a conference room, and say that person had a gun.
Apple’s stock plummeted overnight, more than 7% — crushing the company’s value by more than $40 billion.
Oooof. If any place was high security and on top of this stuff, I would think it would be Apple. Pretty sad-though now there’s evidence that there aren’t more people involved. More as this story develops…
