An Apple Inc employee was found dead on Wednesday at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters, police said, with local media reporting that the victim had suffered a head wound and a gun was discovered near his body.

Sergeant Andrea Urena of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office told reporters at a press conference that deputies were called to Apple’s main offices in Cupertino at 8:35 a.m. PDT(1535 GMT).

“When deputies responded to the campus they found one individual male down and determined he was deceased,” Urena said.

“Further investigation determined that no other individuals were involved. We believe this to be an isolated incident and that nobody else on campus or in the public is at risk,” she added.

Urena said that Santa Clara County Coroner’s investigators would conduct an autopsy to ascertain the cause and manner of death. She said that authorities were not searching for any suspects.

The San Jose Mercury News, citing emergency dispatch calls, said initial calls to police reported a man with a head wound.

Dispatch audio posted on the newspaper’s website also shows that the unidentified victim was found in a conference room on the campus with a gun.

Urena declined to comment on those reports at the press conference.

Apple, which on Tuesday reported its first-ever decline in iPhone sales and its first revenue drop in 13 years, did not immediately respond to requests by Reuters for comment.

‘Smoking gun so hot it’s still on fire’: Ex-US Attorney astonished by text shown in Vindman testimony

Published

on

A former U.S. Attorney says Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman has delivered "smoking gun" evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement between President Donald Trump and Ukraine.

The National Security Council staffer told a House impeachment inquiry that he was aware of -- and alarmed by -- efforts as early as March to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, which he believed were conducted to deliver a political benefit the president.

The counsel for House Democrats then showed a text sent 30 minutes before Trump's July 25 call to Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky, which shows the special envoy Kurt Volker dangling a White House visit to a Zelensky aide in exchange for an investigation.

‘Perfectly impeachable’: George Conway says Vindman and Williams testimony is ‘absolutely devastating’ for Trump

Published

on

On Tuesday, as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified publicly about their knowledge of the Ukraine scandal, conservative lawyer George Conway called the testimony "devastating" for President Donald Trump — and proclaimed his conduct both impeachable and criminal.

This testimony, from two witnesses to the July 25 call, is absolutely devastating. That call was absolutely “perfect,” all right—perfectly impeachable.

And criminal.
