A Madison, Wisconsin jury has found Ali A. Hassan guilty of the homicide by intoxicated use of a firearm in the workplace killing of Fatoumatta Jallow, 23. Jallow was at work at a group home for developmentally disabled adults operated by the same company that employed Hassan on December 21, 2016 when Hassan shot her dead. Jallow's murder was one tragedy in a series of events associated with Hassan's rampage that night.

Hassan was also found guilty of the attempted murder of another female employee Julie Connors. Despite being shot multiple times, Connors was somehow able to dial 911 for help.
A responding officer put out a fire started by Hassan who was also found guilty of reckless endangerment for endangering the lives of the home's residents and for attempted arson for starting a fire at the group home. The death count might have been higher if not for Connors and the responding officer's heroic efforts.
After fleeing the scene Hassan crashed into another vehicle endangering the lives his victims in that car.
Warrants obtained in this case revealed Hassan was obsessed with female coworkers and had "a spiral" of drug and alcohol problems.
The Jallow murder occurred approximately one mile away from the scene of Caroline Nosal's homicide some nine months earlier. After complaining to management about a male co-worker who was later terminated, that individual shot Caroline dead in the parking lot where she worked as she left her job on February 2, 2016.

In fact it was Caroline's mother Workplace Violence Prevention Institute member Jane Brady Nosal who alerted me to the Jallow murder back in 2016.
