2 dead in shooting at Vancouver, Wash., paint store

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Police say two people were shot and killed Monday at a Vancouver business park, briefly prompting a lockdown at a nearby school.
Authorities said the shooting happened just before noon at a Benjamin Moore Paint distribution center. Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said two people were killed, including the shooter.
“We do not believe there are any outstanding suspects,” Kapp said. “There is no threat to the general public.”
No one else was injured in the shooting, she said.
The shooter has been described as a man in his 60s. Kapp said police were still working to confirm the relationship between the two people.
Details of the shooting were not immediately available.
“We don’t have a lot confirmed at this point,” Kapp said just before 1:30 p.m.
The business is in an industrial park right next to a state highway. At least four police cars were at the scene hours after the shooting.
A nearby elementary school was locked down briefly during the investigation, Kapp said.
Vancouver is near Portland, Ore., on the north bank of the Columbia River. It’s the fourth largest city in Washington, with a population of more than 161,000.
