2nd office shooting in 2 days in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Sheriff’s officials in southwest Washington state say someone has been shot inside a county public health building, marking the second workplace shooting in Vancouver in two days.

Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman said the shooting happened just before 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Center for Community Health, in a county building on the Department of Veterans Affairs campus.

One person was shot, and the victim’s condition wasn’t clear, Neiman said. The suspected shooter was taken into custody.

Investigators did not believe anyone else is involved, but officials were still clearing the complex and getting people out of the building.

On Monday, a paint company driver fatally shot a company manager and then killed himself at a Vancouver business park.

Police found the manager, Ryan E. Momeny, 45, lying dead in front of the Benjamin Moore Paint distribution center, authorities said. Robert R. Brown, 64, a company driver, was found inside a vehicle in the parking lot, dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Vancouver police.
