According to news agencies, a dead body has been found in a meeting room at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino. At first it was not clear whether the person was an Apple employee or not, but later it was confirmed that the person in question worked for Apple.

Later a dead body was found in the conference room with a gun next to it. Sources only revealed that the man, who apparently killed himself was Hispanic. No further details are available about his identity. Below are Matt Keller’s (ABC news) tweets about the incident :

“We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple.”
