An Apple employee apparently shot himself in the head in a conference room at the company's northern California headquarters Wednesday morning.

A 911 caller reported "a body is in one of the conference rooms with a gun." Emergency responders found the Hispanic male employee deceased from a gunshot wound to the head. A handgun was found on the desk near his body, the NY Daily News reports.

"There was no other individuals involved and they believe it was an isolated incident," said Sgt. Andrea Urena with the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department at a press conference.

An earlier call to 911 at 8:38 a.m. reported a female employee with a head wound was escorted from the building by security.

Police did not identify the female employee or explain how the 2 incidents are related.

The man's death comes a day after the tech giant's quarterly earnings fell for the first time in more than a decade.

Apple's stock price tumbled 6% to $97.82 at the end of the regular trading session on Wednesday.

Thanks to loyal reader Terrance Allen for the tip.

    I'm not trying to tell you how to write on your blawg but uhm that title might be a little misleading to folks who struggle with reading comprehension.

  • Luvn_it

    Reading the title first you get the idea he was shot by someone else. Until you actually read the story and realize he committed suicide.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Yep. I was thinking the same thang. I mean he was shot but he shot himself.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    That's sad but they are fortunate he didn't go on a spree. Rest in peace...

  • Locapoca

    Now what in the hell could have been so serious you done shot yourself in the head in a conference room? Disagreement over the new iPhone 7 design, color, or charger design? The truth is It will NEVER be this serious for this to be the answer. Just craziness http://sandrarose.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_nono.gif

    Thanks, but my readers do just fine with reading comprehension. ?

  • Sonny Johnson

    Truth be told Apple is not losing any sleep over a quarterly loss or a dead employee.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Them people really want the iPhone to have a "backdoor".

  • Luvn_it

    So believe there's a chance someone else was involved??

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    um, maybe they said he was being transferred to the overseas 'production office'?

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Regular readers do ? but those other folks on can not speak for. LOL

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    hey Xocio! (now you know what we talk about every time you login... I just need to know is there ANY progress on finding you some pants?)

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    were the victim and the injured lady dating?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that it was reported yesterday that Apple's sales declined for the first time in 13 years.
    Did he think he was about to be fired?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    no employer cares about a dead employee. nobody is indispensable. you die at your desk Friday, come Monday they scrubbing your hard drive and assigned a new password to your replacement, smh.

  • Fendi

    He wanted the iPhone 7 to have an earphone jack, as it should.

  • hotntot95

    Yeah, another dumb reason to kill yourself..when someone breaks up with u..just stop and remember that its about 7 BILLION other people out there and other companies u can work for...

  • Auditor

    Sad thing is Apple is sitting on billions in cash. Wouldn't have to fire anyone but gotta please those investors first...

  • Auditor

    Nope...companies buy insurance policies on you that you have no idea they own. Make money off you coming and going.

    Baltimore Police Shoot 13-Year-Old Holding BB Gun
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    BALTIMORE — Apr 27, 2016, 5:59 PM ET

    Baltimore Police say an officer shot and wounded a 13-year-old who refused to drop a BB gun that was a replica of a semiautomatic pistol. ?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    you go to the kona too!

    :facepalm:

  • Fendi

    So is he.

    Sidenote: Apple needs to do something about their cheap ass chargers and headsets that don't last but a matter of months before they require replacement. Apple is no more than a company full of hustlers - dirty hustlers at that. They'll get theirs.

  • Auditor

    Never owned an apple so can't say. I know I washed my iPod one time and it still worked so I was happy lol. Not the touch screen one tho...like maybe 3-4 generations back.

  • Fendi

    That's awesome! Lol. How exactly did it land in the washer?

  • Auditor

    Lol didn't land nowhere but in my pocket...boom washed. I check my pockets religiously now lol.

  • imright

    suicide is for the weak.

  • Buttercup

    :dead: :ghost: :casket:

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I just noticed that, I thought he was just shirtless. Lololololol

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Lol!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    no.... there are more pressing issues than his
    shirt-less-ness

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Rude

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    girl! you know I keep my screen super minimized at the office, so I'm like, is that a perdue roaster propped up there *squints* ,,,but then when I saw it on my tablet at home!

  • nekkkyj

    That sad I'm glad he didn't kill everyone on the job

  • MzFutureLCSW

    So, had he been fired? It is a shame how depressed and lost people become after losing a job. When you do not grow up in a warm & loving home and you have no safety net, people believe suicide is the answer.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Folks just done gone mad. Could he not have done this ish in the comfort of his own home??? He could've played some music, took a nice long warm bath whateverrrr

    Why take that mess to work? I'm glad that no one else was harmed.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Hmmm did he bop the chick on the head and get scared?!?!
    Does he always carry his gun?
    Where they involved in any sort of way?

    Any Apple Roses out there with the inside scoop? waiting:
    Terrence Allen! We need more info! ?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Hmmm he was getting move into a Cube
    He tired of changing phones so often

    Pick one ???

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    maybe because that's where he was sure to meet up with her (one last time)???

  • Branch Davidian

    Was his name "Innovation"?

  • Branch Davidian

    They were just Beta Testing the new iMurder app..

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    find an available corner.... any one will do... :chase:

  • Locapoca

    I agree with Nancy I'm dead at all of these responses ? But you have to admit it leaves an opening for punchlines because it happened in a conference room..... At Apple nonetheless

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    All facts. This is from an Apple addict.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Them chargers are the worst on earth. I don't even waste my time buying the Apple ones, they gone break anyways.

  • Fendi

    The only thing is that they work quicker than the off-brand ones, even the ones that are "Apple approved." Oh, well.

  • DivineMsM
  • 88

    His family was probably threatened kill yourself or we will kill you and them.

  • Pebbles

    I so agree! They're made cheap and very expensive At that.

  • Locapoca

    Lol at "bop" you kill me with your vocab ?

  • Locapoca

    I'm glad this read shot and wounded and not shot and murdered ??. http://sandrarose.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_pray.gif

  • Fendi

    That's the only positive. I didn't post the entire article, but my prayer is that the boy survives and will be well.

  • SummerBaby

    I think he did it at work to make sure he was found. #shrug

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I said the same thing after this rude YT bish had the audacity to jump in front of the LIRR during the morning rush. I was so mad! Turns out she lost her job , her man and some other ish.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Yeah besides that malnourished chest meat, his pubs need to be covered.

  • Jusstlookn

    While I do believe there are other options when you are in pain, to call someone weak, when they feel they are not any other options is cruel. We all have our opinions. Reminds self, in time of need don't call imright. lol

  • Jusstlookn

    This is horrible and tragic, wish with man had sought and found help. Those around at Apple don't care, my prayers and thoughts to his family.

  • ReadingUfromTX

    ^^This! While asking family did he leave a key? We need to get it back for um "security purposes." Meaning they cheap ass don't want to pay $100 to re-key the place.

  • imright

    yes, please dont.lol

  • Jusstlookn

    Folds arm, go have a glass of wine. That is not nice.

    He took to work, so they would be depressed like him.

  • ReadingUfromTX

    It's called clever marketing. Notice she stated facts but in a sensational way. It's part of the cyber business world where key words equates hits to a page and Ms. Sandra has a Phd.

    If she ever put out an ebook on how to run a blog...I would buy it.

    I assume that the performance of each division is evaluated separately and those two may have been responsible for the divisions that underperformed.
