TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say the shooter in a murder-suicide inside a restaurant at an upscale Tucson mall was a Tucson Fire Department captain.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said 60-year-old Frederick Bair fired multiple rounds in the Firebirds Wood Fired Grill Friday night, killing one man and wounding a woman before turning the gun on himself. Sheriff’s department spokesman Cody Gress late Saturday said the woman was Bair’s ex-wife, 57-year-old Mary Jo Bair. She was shot in the leg and was expected to recover.
Gress identified the other man as 65-year-old Eliot Cobb.
Deputies said Bair and Cobb were already dead when they arrived at the busy restaurant in the La Encantada mall.
