Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Westfield, IL)

WESTVILLE — A performance evaluation between a local chemical company president and a longtime employee turned deadly the day after Christmas.

About 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a call of shots fired came into Vermilion County’s 911 center from DynaChem Inc., a chemical company south of Westville, said Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn.

DynaChem’s president had been doing a performance evaluation of an employee who had worked at the facility for more than 20 years, Hartshorn said, when the worker pulled a handgun from a briefcase. He shot his boss twice — once in the head and once in the hip — and then turned the gun on himself, taking his own life, according to Hartshorn.

Keith Rife, president and CEO of DynaChem, according to the company’s website, did not suffer life-threatening injuries, Hartshorn said. Rife was rushed by ambulance to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

The employee, chemist Wayne Woodson of Georgetown, was pronounced dead at the scene. Woodson is listed on DynaChem’s website as its director of new technologies.

“All we know is something went wrong in the performance evaluation,” Hartshorn said.

Hartshorn said Rife managed to get out of the office on his own and into a hallway where other employees helped him and called 911.

Investigators say the shooter, whose name has not been released, fired shots through the door of the apartment, then shot out a side window and broke into the unit, which houses two couples.

Once inside the apartment, the gunman shot 24-year-old Austin Duink and 21-year-old Donovan Cope, deputies say. Two female occupants fled the apartment, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The gunman then shot himself, according to investigators.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Wichita, KS)

A man who walked into a gift shop Thursday and shot his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend before turning the shotgun on himself has died, Wichita police confirmed on Monday.

The 40-year-old man shot himself in the head shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, 2600 E. Douglas, and died just before 5 p.m. Friday at Wesley Medical Center, Capt. Brent Allred said.

Police said he went into the boutique and ordered everyone in the shop to leave except his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend and the 46-year-old man who is her new boyfriend. She fled out a back door with others, but the boyfriend was shot as he walked toward the front of the store to confront the shooter.

The victim left the store, heard another shot and thought his girlfriend might be in danger, so he broke a window on the west side of the business as a distraction, police said. When he re-entered the store, he found the shooter on the floor.

Both victims were taken to Wesley for treatment, police said.

WICHITA, Kan. — UPDATE: The man accused of shooting another and then himself at an east Wichita business Thursday afternoon has died.

The shooting happened around 2:15 p.m. at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, a resale shop in the 2600 block of east Douglas. That’s two blocks east of Grove.

According to Wichita Police, a 40-year-old man walked into the store, which is owned by his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend. He was carrying a shotgun and asked everyone inside to leave, saying he was looking for two people.

His ex-girlfriend left the store through the backdoor at the same time her current 46-year-old boyfriend walked in.

The suspect confronted the other man, then shot him in the leg/groin area. The 46-year-old was able to get out of the store, then heard two more shots. He peeked in through a window and saw the suspect had shot himself in the head.

Police arrived, and both men were rushed to a local hospital.

The victim is now listed in good condition and is expected to be released on Saturday.

The suspect passed away at around 5 p.m. Friday, his sister said. She also said that despite police reports saying he was expected to recover, he had a slim chance of survival. No names were released.

Police believe the shooting was domestic-related. Officers say the suspect had sought out his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

The 46-year-old had earlier reported to police earlier this month that the suspect had threatened him over the phone.
