Shooting at an Ohio Airport Parking Lot

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities in Cleveland say a man fatally shot his airport-security-officer wife, fired at a second person, and then killed himself at an off-site airport employee parking lot.

Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris says the shooting happened late this morning on the employee parking lot of the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The shooting was an apparent homicide and suicide.

The police spokesman says the man fired at another Transportation Security Administration employee who was commuting to work with the man’s estranged wife but missed.

The shooting occurred at the Riveredge airport employee parking lot, located north of the airport in an industrial area along Interstate 480. No names were immediately released.

Police were not sure of a motive for the shooting.
