A statement from the Texas-based company that owns the Lehigh Southwest cement plant says the plant is once again open and hopes to be fully operational within a week.
Last Wednesday a truck driver at the plant -- Shareef Allman -- went on a shooting rampage after complaining of racial discrimination. He was ultimately shot to death the following day in Sunnyvale, by Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies.
