Company driver shoots his manager, then himself

A paint company driver has fatally shot a manager and himself at a business park in the south-west Washington city of Vancouver.

Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp identified the manager as 45-year-old Ryan Momeny, who was killed yesterday in front of a Benjamin Moore Paint distribution centre.

She says 64-year-old Robert Brown was found inside a vehicle in the car park, dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police did not discuss a motive. Ms Kapp says they continue to investigate but are not looking for anyone else in connection with the shootings.

A nearby school was briefly locked down when shots were first reported.
