Campus shootings are probable murder-suicide

April 3, 2007


— A man and a woman were shot to death in the University of Washington's architecture building Monday in an apparent murder-suicide, university police said.

Officers responding to reports of gunfire found the two and a handgun in an office on the fourth floor of Gould Hall, Assistant University Police Chief Ray Wittmier said.

The female victim, a 25-year-old university employee, had a restraining order against the man, who "almost certainly" shot her and took his own life, Wittmier said.

About six shots were fired, and the only people involved were the woman and the man, who was in his 40s, Wittmier said. There were no eyewitnesses, he said.
