Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) -- Police say there's now a 5th fatal victim from a shooting at a Minneapolis sign company.

That person was critically injured and died this afternoon. Police also released the gunman's name, he's 36 year old Andrew Engeldinger of Minneapolis.

They say he was fired just hours before the attack. He opened fire Thursday afternoon at Accent Signage Systems, it's on the city's north side. Inside Engeldinger was initially one of 5 people found dead.

Officers say they found packaging for 10-thousand rounds of ammunition during a search of Engeldinger's house, also a 2nd gun.

Chief Tim Dolan with the Minneapolis Police says, "we believe he purchased these guns a year ago, he obviously had this gun for awhile and he's obviously been practicing how to use that gun."

4 others in the building were injured, 1 of whom has now died and 2 others remain hospitalized.
