gm plant shut down after fatal dispute between cleaning workers

General Motors has halted production at its plant in Lake Orion, Michigan after a dispute between two cleaning service employees turned lethal.

Deputies were called to the facility at 1:37 a.m. on Thursday, August 11 to find an individual “unconscious and bleeding.” CPR was unsuccessfully performed on 49-year-old Gregory Lanier Robertson of Pontiac, Michigan, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they discovered the suspect in the man’s death standing in a dock area of the plant not far from the body, and also found the object they believe to have been used in the “fatal assault.” An investigation into what led to the violence is ongoing, but the suspect is being held at the Oakland County Jail with possible homicide charges to follow. Neither individual involved was employed by General Motors but by a third-party cleaning service company working at the assembly plant.

There was an altercation between coworkers at the GM Orion plant this morning. It resulted in the death of one victim and we have the suspect in custody. There is no active danger to the community or the plant.

In 2020, Orion Assembly became General Motors first plant to convert to full EV production. It currently employs over 1,200 people to produce the Chevrolet Bolt.

GM says production is cancelled for the day.
