The Legal Intelligencer has reported that Pittsburgh-based K&L Gates was hesitant to say much Wednesday about an employee who police said went on a shooting rampage Tuesday at a suburban-Pittsburgh L.A. Fitness, killing four people, including himself, and injuring nine others.

"K&L Gates is deeply saddened by last night's events, and offers its condolences to the families and friends of all who were involved in this terrible tragedy," the firm said in a statement.

K&L Gates is offering on-site counseling for employees through the firm's employee assistance program, a firm spokesman said.

The spokesman confirmed that the alleged shooter, George Sodini, 48, was a systems analyst in the finance department and had worked at K&L Gates since 1999. Prior to that, according to media reports and his profile on LinkedIn, Sodini worked at Development Dimensions International.
