Sherrill said nothing as he immediately walked up to the shift supervisor, Richard Esser Jr., and shot him in the chest at close
range. Still silent, Sherrill stalked more victims throughout the winding corridors of the Edmond post office. His rampage lasted
for only ten minutes but, during that time, he managed to fire off 50 rounds and murder 14 employees. In a final act of violence,
Sherrill turned one of the guns on himself and committed suicide.
