Suspect In Office Shooting Found Dead

"PHOENIX, AZ — A man believed to be the suspect in a fatal Phoenix office shooting that killed one man and wounded a prominent Phoenix lawyer, has been found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said on Thursday.

"Arthur Douglas Harmon, 70, was suspected of opening fire in an office building in central Phoenix on Wednesday following a legal mediation meeting, before fleeing in a car.

"Phoenix police said officers in the Mesa suburb had located the suspect's Kia Optima sedan and "an individual matching the suspect description nearby with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound."

"Harmon had opened fire following a morning meeting involving a legal dispute. Police identified the fatal victim as Steve Singer, 48. Law firm Osborn Maledon confirmed that litigator Mark Hummels—who is president of the Federal Bar Association's Phoenix chapter—was also wounded.

"Police said the two men may have been the gunman's intended victims. A third victim, a woman, was not believed to have been intentionally targeted."
