VANCOUVER, Wash. — The man wounded at a Veterans Affairs office in Vancouver had sought a restraining order last year against the former co-worker accused of shooting him.
Allen Bricker alleged that Deborah Lennon was stalking him with unwanted daily emails pursuing a romantic relationship.
The Columbian reports a Clark County District court commissioner issued two temporary protection orders in January 2013 but denied a permanent order in March because neither showed up at a hearing.
The sheriff’s office says Lennon went to Bricker’s office Tuesday and shot him twice in the chest. He remains in a Vancouver hospital with serious injuries.
Lennon is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, facing attempted murder and assault charges.
Bricker is a VA regional financial officer and Lennon had worked for him as an auditor.
