911 calls of UPS shooting released

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — On Tuesday morning, Birmingham Police received multiple calls of an active shooter about 9:21 a.m.- at the UPS Customer Service Center on Inglenook Lane in east Birmingham. The patrol officers who responded rallied quickly then made their way into the building- according to Police Chief A.C. Roper.

Former UPS employee, Kerry Joe Tesney, had apparently entered the location in uniform and shot and killed two UPS employees before turning the gun on himself.

Birmingham Police confirm that the shooter had recently received his termination papers and seemed to be targeting victims in supervisory roles.

Doug Hutcheson, 33, from Odenville, was a driver supervisor who joined UPS in 1999.

Brian Callans, 46, from Birmingham,  was a business manager for UPS and had been with the company 26 years.

911 calls from the situation were understandably panicked and confused. The woman in the original call from inside the UPS facility struggled to describe what was going on. The second audio is the Birmingham Police call for backup.
