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.

America’s millionaires just stopped paying into Social Security for the rest of 2020

Published

On Wednesday, not even two full months into 2020, millionaires will stop paying into Social Security for the year due to the program's payroll tax cap.

The cap limits annual wages subject to the Social Security payroll tax to the first $137,700. Sarah Rawlins, program associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), wrote Tuesday that the cap means "someone who makes $1,000,000 per year stops paying into the program on February 19, 2020."

"That makes a millionaire's effective tax rate well below the 6.2% of income that most Americans pay," Rawlins noted. "Instead, it is less than 1% of a millionaire's income. The Social Security tax is only levied on wages, excluding income from other sources like capital gains, meaning those with wages over the cap likely have an effective tax rate even lower than this estimate."
