Two people are dead in an apparent domestic dispute on the Deaconess Medical Center campus, authorities said. Initial reports indicate the gunman opened fire inside the Rockwood Cancer Clinic this morning, killing his wife, then turned the weapon on himself. The wife reportedly worked at the clinic. Details remain sketchy but after initially evacuating the building, authorities now are letting workers return. Police in tactical gear searched the building earlier. Fifth Avenue between Lincoln and Monroe remains closed, however/SR. More here.
