OSHA reports that 2,000,000 Americans are victimized by workplace violence each and every year. As startling as this figure is, OSHA reports that "many" cases go unreported each year. Thus the actual figure is unknown.

Also according to OSHA homicide is the fourth leading cause of occupational death in the United States.

Four categories of people can be victims or perpetrators of workplace violence: Employees, clients, customers and visitors.

In this tragic case, the victims were employees while the alleged perpetrator appears to have been a client of the business.
