Man arrested in death of colleague at GM Michigan plant

ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. –

A cleaning service employee who was working at a General Motors plant in Michigan was killed Thursday in an altercation with a colleague, authorities said.

It is unclear what led to the fight at the Orion Assembly Factory in Orion Town or how the person was killed. Authorities said they recovered an item used in the attack but did not say what it was.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the plant around 1:40 a.m. and found Gregory Robertson, 49, unconscious and bleeding profusely. Delegates tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

The sheriff’s office said a 48-year-old man standing in a nearby dock area was arrested.

Both men work for a cleaning service contracted by GM and are not employees of the automaker. Robertson, of Pontiac, north of Detroit, worked at the assembly plant about 40 miles (62 km) northwest of Detroit for about seven months, the sheriff’s office said.

The automaker said in a statement that it had canceled production at the plant on Thursday.
