CENTER TWP., Pa. - A woman who worked at a Penn State satellite campus near Pittsburgh was apparently shot dead by her estranged husband in a university parking lot, according to police. The husband then killed himself.
Multiple shots were fired Wednesday afternoon near a Penn State Beaver dining hall, Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Eric Hermick told Pittsburgh's WTAE-TV.
An officer heard the shots and lots of screaming and responded to the scene. He found the food services worker and her estranged husband dead beside her car.
Penn State Beaver later issued an alert that shots were fired, saying the situation was contained and there was "no threat."
Hermick said there was never a threat to the general campus population. About 650 students attend the school, but not many were on campus because it's finals week.
The campus has been closed for the day.
The lawsuit filed Thursday claims the increases violate federal commerce law and hinder a citizen's constitutional right to travel.Read More »
