Documentary in Works on Victim of Minneapolis Workplace Shooting

Keith Basinski died Sept. 27 while making a stop as a UPS driver at Accent Signage. Local filmmaker Deacon Warner is paying homage to him in a new documentary, the Southwest Journal reports.

It's been just three weeks since Richfield native Andrew Engeldinger open fired on his former Accent Signage co-workers before killing himself.

Spring Lake Park resident Keith Basinski was among the six victims who have now died after being shot multiple times. Basinski, a UPS driver, was making a stop at the business on his regular route.

Local filmaker Deacon Warner, a resident of Minneapolis' Bryn Mawr neighborhood, has nearly completed a documentary video on Basinski, the Southwest Journal reported Tuesday:

Taking the suggestion of resident Iliana Wilson, Warner interviewed people about their memories of Basinski, who worked in Bryn Mawr for 29 years.

“He was more than a UPS driver, he had a real presence,” said Warner, who teaches video production through IFP Media Arts.

“It’s neat to listen to neighborhood residents’ different reflections—how many different ways you can impact somebody’s life,” he said.

Basinski's siblings recently sent a card to the parents of Engeldinger, the Star Tribune reported in an article about Engeldinger's parents' struggles to help their son with mental illness.

The Engeldingers also spoke with Minnesota Public Radio in an interview airing Tuesday and Wednesday.
