Phoenix office shooting suspect found dead

The suspect in Wednesday’s Arizona office shooting has been found dead, according to Phoenix police.

A body matching the description of suspect Arthur Douglas Harmon, 70, was located near a Mesa, Ariz. parking lot on Thursday, Mesa police reported. A Kia Optima authorities say Harmon may have been driving was also found in the parking lot.

The person found on Thursday died of a gunshot wound, apparently self-inflicted, police said earlier on Thursday.

Police went on the hunt for Harmon on Wednesday after a gunman, later identified by authorities as Harmon, opened fire in an Arizona office building, killing one person and wounding two more.

Harmon had been involved in a legal mediation session at the office building before the shooting, police said on Wednesday.

“He was involved in some type of litigation meeting,” Phoenix Police Sergeant Tommy Thompson said at a news conference on Wednesday. “After that meeting, he got into an altercation with some of the individuals and actually shot two of those individuals.”

The man killed Wednesday has been identified by police as Steve Singer, 48. A 43-year-old man was injured and remains in critical condition. A 32-year-old woman was also shot, but her injuries were not life threatening, authorities said.
