Shooting at Penn State Beaver

Shooting at Penn State Beaver

State police lieutenant Eric Hermick says an officer heard multiple gunshots and screaming around 4 p.m. Wednesday. He found the food services worker and her estranged husband dead beside her vehicle.

According to police, her husband came there and after they fought, he shot her then himself by her auto in the parking lot, next to the cafeteria area where she worked.

The Penn State Beaver campus in Monaca was placed on lockdown after the man shot his ex near her vehicle just before 4 p.m., State Troopers told KDKA.

Hermick said the husband apparently had lured the woman to the parking lot.

Police are investigating where Kelly purchased the guns and say there was no protection from abuse order filed against him. Police said they found Christmas presents at the scene. We're waiting for the coroner to arrive, but this is not an active shooter situation.

There was never a threat to the general campus population, Hermick said.

Johnston-Smith said students were not involved, but wouldn't confirm whether any employees were.

It happened in a parking lot on the Monaca campus Wednesday afternoon forcing the school to go on lockdown and then close for the day. "It appears to be some type of domestic violence issue here".
