MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Family members of a man shot and wounded in Minnesota's deadliest workplace shooting say he has died of his injuries.

The family of Eric Rivers said in a statement Thursday that he passed away at Hennepin County Medical Center Wednesday night.

Rivers was one of three people wounded in the shooting at Accent Signage Systems Sept. 27.

Gunman Andrew Engeldinger shot and killed six others, including Rivers, before taking his own life at the Minneapolis company where he had just been fired.

Rivers had been hospitalized in critical condition since the shooting.
