This was the scene last night at a business park in Philadelphia.

Police say 44 year old Vincent Dortch called all the partners there for a meeting about the Heritage.

He shot and killed 42 year old James Reif, 41 year old Robert Norris, and 46 year old Mark Norris, who all grew up in Endicott.

They were partners in Watson International, the group that bought the Heritage last year.

Dortch was not part of the original deal but invested later.

"Within a minute or two of being in the conference room he pulled out two weapons, he verbally told the individuals in the room that they were responsible for stealing the money from him and said something to the effect that you have a minute or two to say your prayers," says Joseph Fox of the Philadelphia Police Dept.

The Heritage flooded in June.

Police sources say the argument had to do with 1.6 million paid on the insurance claim.

There were 3 other men at the meeting, one was critically injured and two others bound with duct tape.

Dortch shot and killed himself during a shoot out with police.
