Murder-suicide under investigation in Morgan County

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Morgan County authorities say a Maryland man and woman are dead following a murder-suicide.

It happened last Friday night in the parking lot of Coolfont Resort in Berkeley Springs.

Morgan County Sheriff KC Bohrer said the man was waiting on the woman to leave the resort at about 9 p.m. Boher said when she saw him she began running through the parking lot and he shot her several times–using two different handguns. Bohrer said the man then shot and killed himself.

The names of those involved haven’t been released.

Bohrer said the shootings were captured on the resorts’ video system.
