Update Thursday morning: The suspect in the shooting death of a supervisor at Oklahoma City’s Hobby Lobby distribution center is dead following a rollover crash and barricade situation 30 miles away in Cashion.

A manhunt is on for a Hobby Lobby distribution center employee who shot and killed a manager Wednesday afternoon.
Oklahoma City police said the suspect drove away in a red Dodge Charger and may be armed with two firearms. They did not provide a name.
Some outlets said the vehicle was a Dodge Challenger, including the Associated Press, which said it had a license tag from the Muscogee Nation.
“We had an employee come in to speak to a manager. An altercation began and got heated,” Sgt. Rob Robertson said.
Roberson said the suspect “shot the manager at least once.”
Officers were called to the scene just before 5 p.m. Robertson said investigators are questioning witnesses to determine what happened and searching for the suspect.
The distribution center in Oklahoma City covers more than 10 million square feet and includes warehousing, manufacturing, transportation, and corporate departments. Robertson said officers cleared the building where the shooting took place, but he didn’t know which unit that was.
According to KOCO, the suspect is about 5 feet 911 inches tall and 230 pounds.
