GREENSBURG (AP) — State police say a man and woman were fatally shot outside a western Pennsylvania apartment complex, and a suspect was later found dead of a self-inflicted wound.

Trooper Stephen Limani says someone reported hearing gunfire shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday at the Hempfield Heights complex in Westmoreland County.

Troopers arrived to find two people dead in the parking lot, and they immediately blocked off the street and began searching the large complex.

The whole complex was eventually locked down and an emergency response team brought in. Limani said police found a man who they believe was the shooter dead inside one of the apartments in the afternoon, and the lockdown was lifted.

Warden John Walton of the Westmoreland County Prison said the female victim was 23-year-old Christina White, a part-time corrections officer hired in August.

State police said the names of the two men killed would be released today, when autopsies are also slated.
