Suspect in Washington shooting a former employee
VANCOUVER, Wash.- Authorities say a woman accused of shooting and injuring an employee at a Veterans Affairs office in Vancouver, Wash., used to work at the office.
The Clark County sheriff's office says another employee wrestled away the gun.
The sheriff's office says 46-year-old Deborah A. Lennon contacted 45-year-old Allen Bricker on Tuesday afternoon in his fourth-floor office in the Center for Community Health building on the Veterans Affairs campus.
Investigators say she shot him twice in the chest with a handgun.
Another employee, 31-year-old Neil Burkhardt, a former Marine, took the gun away.
The sheriff's office says Bricker is in serious condition Wednesday. Lennon also is hospitalized with injuries from the scuffle.
Burkhardt was treated for a hand injury.
