Woman held in Vancouver office shooting
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — The Clark County, Wash., sheriff's office says a woman accused of shooting and injuring a worker at a Veterans Affairs office in Vancouver has been released from a hospital and booked into jail.
The sheriff's office says 46-year-old Deborah A. Lennon of Vancouver was booked into the Clark County Jail on Wednesday afternoon for investigation of attempted murder, stalking, cyberstalking and assault. Sgt. Fred Neiman says she's scheduled for a court appearance Thursday.
The sheriff's office and Veterans Affairs officials say Lennon is a former employee of the office and another employee wrested away her gun. The sheriff's office says the woman went to Allen Bricker's fourth-floor office in the Center for Community Health building on the Veterans Affairs campus on Tuesday afternoon and shot him twice in the chest with a handgun. Bricker remains hospitalized with wounds described as serious.
The woman suffered some face and chest injuries in the scuffle.
