Kansas gunman was served with restraining order 90 minutes before shooting

Gunman Cedric Larry Ford was served with a restraining order just 90 minutes before he went on a shooting spree at Excel Industries in Hesston, Kansas, Thursday, killing three people and injuring 14, Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton said Friday. Walton says that the protection from abuse order, which The New York Times reports is "usually intended to keep perpetrators of domestic violence away from their victims," could have sparked Ford's rampage at his place of work.

"They said he was upset, but nothing greater than anybody else who gets served a PFA," a sheriff said. Ford, 38, was killed in a shootout with the police.
