Airport victim died from single gunshot to chest
The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office says a Southwest Airlines employee shot and killed outside of an Oklahoma City airport died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott said Wednesday that 52-year-old Michael Winchester's death was ruled a homicide.
Oklahoma City police say the suspect in Tuesday's shooting was 45-year-old Lloyd Dean Buie, a former Southwest Airlines employee who likely shot Winchester in retaliation for circumstances that led to his leaving his job last year.
Elliott says Buie's death has been ruled a suicide from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Southwest Airlines says Buie quit his job last year after he refused to take an alcohol screening.
Police say Buie shot and killed Winchester from the fourth floor of a parking garage.
