Friends say a man accused of shooting his girlfriend to death before attempting suicide on the Gonzaga University campus is a former U.S. Marine who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Tristen N. Jordan, 24, remains at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Angela Gilbert, of Spokane, said he’s under heavy police guard and that his family has not been allowed to see him.
“Never in a million years would we think he would have shot somebody,” Gilbert said. “He really is a loving and kind person, and he’s all about religion.”
