Estranged husband shoots wife in her office
The Denver woman was fatally shot by her estranged husband who then committed suicide.
The 53-year-old victim had recently filed for divorce from her husband, who hunted her down at her workplace on Tuesday, shooting her multiple times, Denver Police Commander Ron Saunier told a news conference.
“He came there with the intent of getting the victim,” Saunier said, adding that when police officers arrived at the scene, the 58-year-old gunman had killed himself.
Denver’s Office of the Medical Examiner identified the dead as Cara Russell and her husband Mickey Russell.
Cara Russell, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was taken to a local hospital following the shooting where she was later pronounced dead, Saunier said.
