Police: Woman dies in UPS hub shooting, alleged shooter in critical condition

Police have identified the man and woman involved in a shooting this morning at the UPS distribution hub on the west side of Columbus.

Police said 54-year-old Danny Fabro came onto the parking lot of the facility, shot his 50-year-old ex-girlfriend Joyce Fox, led police on a chase, then shot himself. Fox and Fabro were hospitalized in critical condition. Fox died from her injuries at Mt. Carmel West at 9:23 p.m.

Police said it started around 4 a.m. when the Fabro shot Fox multiple times while she sat in her pick-up truck. He then fled, but police spotted him shortly after he left the facility. He led police on a chase until they deployed stop-sticks, devices designed to blow the tires of fleeing vehicles. While police waited for Fabro to exit the truck, he apparently shot himself.

In a statement, UPS said: "Our thoughts are with our employee and we are working with local law enforcement. We cannot comment further while there is an active investigation."

Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to call the Columbus Police Homicide Unit at (614) 645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at (614) 461-TIPS.
