PEWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) -- Investigators are looking into the death of a worker at a paper distributor in Pewaukee.

Police say the man was killed when a shelving unit stacked with pallets of copy paper gave way and fell on him at the Xpedx plant Monday.

Waukesha County Sheriff's Detective Steve Pederson says employees joined deputies and EMS crews in trying to move the paper off the victim.

WTMJ-TV reports no one else at the plant was hurt.
