The World

October 15, 1987

A British man trying to abduct his former girlfriend shot and killed two men in the Bristol factory where she worked after beating his mother and sister to death in their home, police said. The suspect--identified as Kevin Weaver, 24--had three shotguns and 500 rounds of ammunition in his car when he surrendered on the outskirts of the city 100 miles west of London, authorities said. Neighbors said Weaver was depressed over the recent breakup with his girlfriend. Less than two months ago, a gunman in the town of Hungerford killed 16 people in Britain's worst mass murder.
